Azure Data Catalog helps data producers and data consumers to discover, organize, and understand diverse data assets, and it enables self-service data source discovery with a crowdsourced model of metadata and annotation in a community and culture of data. In this computer science course, data professionals and business intelligence experts can get hands-on with the cloud-based Azure Data Catalog service to see how it works.
