With the GA release of Fabric in November, 2023, I am dedicating several posts to new features which you will not find in Power BI or Azure Synapse, and the latest one I want to talk about is Data Activator. Data Activator is an interesting tool to include inside of Fabric because it is not reporting or ETL, rather it is a way to manage actions when the data hits defined targets. It is a management system for data stored in Fabric or streamed in Azure using IOT or Event Hubs. You can use Data Activator to monitor the current state or to define actions to occur when certain conditions occur in the data. Data Activator is still in preview, but you can evaluate it now.
Read on to see how to enable it and what you can currently do with it.
