Artificial intelligence is unleashing and accelerating value for businesses at an exponential rate, making everyone’s heads spin. With capabilities like generative AI for code and content, and Copilot standing in as our very own personal assistant, AI is playing a crucial role in helping organizations to accomplish more with their people, data and systems than ever before.

Let’s be honest, many organizations don’t have the infrastructure, clean data or expertise in place to seize the AI opportunity. Our team believes that businesses should be increasing their data modernization investments to achieve a unified, central and reliable data foundation. Only then can they make their AI aspirations a reality, scaling them across multiple locations and initiatives.

Watch the video below to learn more about how Microsoft Fabric is transforming the data landscape and accelerating AI readiness for organizations across industries.

There’s never been a better time to modernize data and reach for the AI stars. That’s why it’s an exciting time to be at the first-ever Microsoft Fabric Community Conference. Thousands of data practitioners came together to learn about what the future holds for Microsoft Fabric – how it’s transforming the data landscape and accelerating the pathways for organizations to become more data and AI-driven.

From keynote speaking sessions to conversations in the expo hall, we connected with clients, showcased our proprietary solutions and met with industry leaders working to build the future with data innovation.
