Integrates very well with Azure technologies, has a good interface and is reasonably priced

Pros and Cons

  • "Has a good interface and is reasonably priced."
  • "There are some limitations with regard to the lineage of data from different parts of the system."

What is our primary use case?

We're building a new system from scratch for our clients and wanted to include the data governance. Their solution is hosted in Azure and it seemed logical to go with something that fits with that. I'm a solution specialist and we are partners with Microsoft. 

What is most valuable?

Purview has a pretty good interface and I'm satisfied with what the solution does and the price it's being sold at. It integrates well with Azure technologies. 

What needs improvement?

There are some limitations to the solution with regard to the lineage of data from different systems. I can see that everything works well, but if we start bringing in data from other systems not hosted in Azure the solution won't know whether it fits in the lineage space. Unfortunately, the solution only integrates with Microsoft Azure technologies so there is potentially some improvement that could be made in that area. In this case, we're lucky that the client has everything in Azure. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've only been using this solution for a couple of months. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We currently have four Purview users. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was very easy, that's part of the appeal. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Purview is reasonably priced and considerably less than most of its competitors.

What other advice do I have?

I'm aware that the solution has some limitations, but that doesn't affect us in this case. If we do eventually need some features that are lacking, then we can look at other alternatives.

I rate the solution nine out of 10. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?
