Microsoft is announcing the May 19 availability of new Azure Synapse features in public preview. Every data professional and business analyst can now access the new features for accelerated insights, including a unified experience with Synapse Studio, integrated SQL and Spark engines, serverless data lake exploration with Synapse SQL, shared metadata store, and built-in Power BI authoring.
Azure Synapse is a limitless analytics service that brings together enterprise data warehousing and big data analytics. It gives customers the freedom to query data on their terms, using either serverless or provisioned resources — at scale. Azure Synapse brings these two worlds together with a unified experience to ingest, prepare, manage, and serve data for immediate business intelligence and machine learning needs.
The service is the next evolution of Azure SQL Data Warehouse and continues to have generally available data warehousing features. New private preview features for Synapse were announced in November 2019.
