Bringing Data Lakes to your Purview

Data Lakes are a tricky beast, always followed with eyerolling jokes about "data swamps", but how DO you keep your lake under control? Way back in the day we had Azure Data Catalog, which did a decent job at cataloguing relational databases, but was utterly rubbish at anything else. With Azure Purview we have a second shot, a chance to perform true Data Governance over Lake-based platforms.

This session focusses on this use case specially, taking the core elements of Azure Purview and scanning lake data, creating resource sets, plugging in Hive metastores and creating that lake catalog we've always dreamed of, all in 20 mins or less!
