The tool gives users a detailed view of data and its distribution across production environments. Users can monitor data storage and data movement for critical data across their infrastructure.

Azure Purview can be integrated with other products offered by Microsoft. Products provided by other platforms, including Amazon web services' S3 storage service, Oracle database, e.t.c. Users have the option of interacting with the Azure purview via the Azure synapse studio when searching for assets.

Pricing for the Azure purview is a pay-as-you-use model. This is cost-effective as users with little workload needing little space do not have to pay a large sum. Users do not need to pay for extra services like scanning SQL servers and the PowerBI tenants.
