I can, I want, I must not – an overview of the current state of Access Management in Fabric

This session provides an overview of the current state of access management in a Microsoft Fabric-enabled environment. Without any question, Microsoft Fabric will change the analytical landscape of analytical platforms. The possibilities of Microsoft Fabric seem limitless. I assume that fabric will become for analytical platforms what Power BI has become self-service Business Intelligence solutions (to be honest – Power BI is so much more already than a data visualization tool).

Nevertheless, a Fabric workspace is more complex than a Power BI workspace. Of course, it’s still a container able to store artifacts, adding compute capabilities to them. But now we must know that many more personas contribute to the workspace content. More personas are involved in creating a “Fabric Solution” than in the good old Power BI days. This session is not only about safekeeping the artifacts from accidental harm in a workspace container but also about granting access or denying access to the data.

In this session, I will showcase some use cases, and life demos of how access can be granted, or not to forget denied.
