Discover data that powers business insights

Prioritizing data and analytics now are critical to building business agility and resilience for the future. Many organisations lack a holistic understanding of their data. It’s challenging to understand what data exists, where data is located, and how to find and access relevant data. Data lacks context such as lineage, classification, and comprehensive metadata, making it difficult for business users to search for the right data and use that data appropriately. As a result, only a small fraction of collected data is used to inform business decisions. Finally, identifying data security issues and protecting sensitive data is inconsistent. It requires ongoing time and effort, especially while maintaining data agility.

Azure Purview is a data governance solution that helps customers gain deep knowledge of all their data while maintaining control over its use. With Azure Purview, organisations discover and curate data, gain insights into their data estate, and centrally govern access to data.
