Most organizations aren’t prepared to properly govern the vast amount of data they generate, which researchers estimate will grow to 175 zettabytes per year by 2025. Is your company ready for this volume? Either way, Microsoft Azure Purview has arrived to help solve this problem.  

Azure Purview is a unified data governance solution that helps organizations achieve a complete understanding of their data regardless of if it’s house on-premises in services like SQL Server and Oracle, in difference clouds like Amazon Web Services S3, or in SaaS applications like Salesforce.  

Through Azure Purview, users can easily create a unified map of your data assets and their relationships with automated data discovery and sensitive data classification. You also can get insight into the location and movement of sensitive data across your hybrid landscape and empower data consumers to find valuable data through a data catalog.  

Azure Purview extends your existing Microsoft and Azure investments by allowing you to add data governance capabilities quickly and easily to your current workloads. For analytics, Azure Purview is deeply integrated with Azure Synapse Analytics so you can search and interact with Azure Purview assets from within the Azure Synapse Studio. Azure Purview captures the lineage relationships between data assets all the way from raw data to business insights. These relationships are captured automatically and kept up to date with turnkey integrations of Azure Purview with SQL Server, Microsoft Power BI, Azure SQL, and others.  

Also, Azure Purview’s automated data classification uses more than 200 prebuilt and custom classifiers to detect sensitive data types such as business terms, government IDs, names, location data and more. And Azure Purview’s integration with Microsoft Information Protection ensures that sensitivity labels you already have defined in the Microsoft 365 Compliance Center can be applied consistently.
