Microsoft Purview Data Catalog: New Features & Enhancements
Published Feb 23 2023 09:00 AM 4,601 Views

Microsoft Purview Data Catalog provides data scientists, engineers, and analysts with the data they need for BI, analytics, AI, and machine learning. It makes data easily discoverable by using familiar business and technical search terms and eliminates the need for Excel data dictionaries with an enterprise-grade business glossary.
