Data Visualization in Microsoft Fabric

By seamlessly integrating with Power BI, Microsoft Fabric revolutionizes how you work with analytics.

There are several benefits to choosing Fabric on top of Power BI. Here are some points that highlight the advantages:

  • Effective Data Accessibility: Microsoft Fabric promotes the concept of having easy access to a unified and centralized data environment (One Lake). As the name suggests, it is a single storage account for all your data, logical “Data Lake” backing all your Fabric workloads. It is the storage account for all your data used in Fabric. This way, the centralized information data can be analyzed and interpreted from multiple sources in a faster and more efficient way to make informed decisions and create valuable insights.
  • Data Governance: Microsoft Fabric provides robust data governance capabilities, ensuring that the data is accurate and reliable. This promotes data integrity, compliance and proper data stewardship, enabling analysts to show trustworthy and high-quality data in reports.
  • Integration with Business Intelligence Tools: Microsoft Fabric integrates popular business intelligence tools, such as Power BI. This integration empowers leveraging BI skills and work within preferred toolsets whilst still benefiting from the unified data environment.
  • Collaborative Analytics: The ability to share visualized data and insights with stakeholders across the organization promotes a data-driven culture and facilitates better decision-making throughout the business.
  • Self-Service Analytics: Microsoft Fabric empowers self-sufficient analysis. The platform’s intuitive interfaces and self-service capabilities realizes independent access, manipulation and data analyzation, reducing our reliance on IT teams for data-related tasks.


Co-Pilot is an AI-powered capability that plays a significant role on this topic because it helps on the following:

  • Create insights and report generation
  • Create narrative summaries
  • Help writing and editing DAX calculations

This means that you will have the flexibility to, via natural language, look at and analyze any data in any way to gain new insights.

Business case:

Imagine, that you need to create a Sales Report and you are not sure how to translate it into analysis, you can simply write a question on Co-Pilot such as:

“Build a report summarizing the sales growth rate of the last 2 years”

With this simple question, Co-Pilot will retrieve suggestions that answer your needs! It is able to suggest new visuals, implement changes or create drilldowns to existing visuals or even design complete report pages from scratch.

More updates on the horizon

It is expected that Fabric will continue to evolve by integrating more technologies and features. This will ensure that Power BI remains a robust and versatile tool that gives its users more opportunities to create insights and make data-driven decisions.
