Against Waiting for Microsoft Fabric

Paul Andrew follows Betteridge’s Law of Headlines:

But, lets prepare for it in terms of the technical capabilities we line up in our existing data architecture.

The hype curve around Microsoft Fabric since its announcement earlier in the year has been huge. The problem is, we now face some difficult questions in terms of our technology estate. Especially if we have designs and a project already in flight using other Azure Resources.

Read on for Paul’s thoughts on the matter and why you shouldn’t wait until Microsoft Fabric is officially out—use what is available in the meantime and then decide whether you want to make a transition. Paul leaves one thing in the margins that I would want to make clear: if this is your plan, avoid the dedicated SQL pool unless you absolutely need it or plan to stay on Synapse once Fabric is GA.
