This is a placeholder blog which will be revisted many, many times over the coming months. This is a list of features for Fabric that I feel need to be in GA for it to be rolled out into production. I know that “being production ready” can be very subjective, this is my own list. But for organisations out there that wish to adopt Fabric, how much are you willing to compromise in terms of these features?

The comments section is open so please add in anything you feel is relevant when being able to productionise a solution.

    1. Check this out from a high-level perspective

      Create Domains in Fabric to separate business units/depts. Then use separate workspaces in those domains to separate dev/test/prod, with seperate Fabric capacities created and assigned to the relevant workspaces. EG a dev & uat Azure F SKU Fabric capacity associated with all dev and uat workspaces, while Prod is on its own capacity.

      I’ve got a video coming out in a couple of days about this – check out
