Azure Purview–notes

Reading notes

Where exactly in your organization is the data which you are searching for? It is a usual fiasco happends in any big/enterprise to search for information/data when an employee resigns, because ‘catalog’ information resides with certain people in the organization which creates a dependency.

Supported data sources


Questions for planning:

Persona – Who are the users?
Source system – What are the data sources such as Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 or Azure SQL Database?
Impact Area – What is the category of this scenario?
Detail scenarios – How the users use Purview to solve problems?
Expected outcome – What is the success criteria?

What are the main organization data sources and data systems?
For data sources that are not supported yet by Purview, what are my options?
How many Purview instances do we need?
Who are the users?
Who can scan new data sources?
Who can modify content inside of Purview?
What process can I use to improve the data quality in Purview?
How to bootstrap the platform with existing critical assets, glossary terms, and contacts?
How to integrate with existing systems?
How to gather feedback and build a sustainable process?


Minor site changes which will make major life changes

Today, I am changing my blog tagline from Praveen’s Drawing Book to Praveen’s CTO Blog, yes… CTO as in Chief Technology Officer. Why? because, becoming a CTO used to be my long term goal since I started the career and I feel it is now time to actually pin that badge in my coat. Someone said it is easy to get that tag if you join / start some new startups but people around me knows me well that I do not prefer free meal.

To become a CTO, you will have to live the life of a CTO!

Wish me good luck, Thanks.

Gestalt Principles

  1. Similarity: Elements that look similar are perceived to have the same function.
  2. Proximity: Elements that are close together appear to be more related than elements that are spaced farther apart.
  3. Common Region: Elements located within the same area are perceived to be grouped together.
  4. Closure: Humans subconsciously ‘complete’ the ‘incomplete’ objects or scenarios they see or perceive
  5. Continuity: Elements that are in same line, or curve are related
