    Welcome to the Microsoft Q&A platform.

    Happy to answer your questions.

    Azure Synapse is an integrated data platform for BI, AI, and continuous intelligence. It connects various analytics runtimes such as SQL and Spark through a single platform that provides a unified way to:

    • Secure your analytics resources, including network, managing single sign-on access to pool, data, and development artifacts.
    • Easily Monitor and quickly optimize, react, and debug events happening in your workspace activities at any layer.
    • Manage your metadata across engines. Create a Spark table and it will be automatically available in your Azure Synapse databases.
    • Interact with the data through a unified user experience. Synapse Studio brings Big Data Developers, Data Engineers, DBAs, Data Analysts, and Data Scientists on to the same platform.

    Hope this helps.
