SQL Server Integration Services Collector in Private Preview

The SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) Collector catalogs metadata from SSIS, helping maintain a comprehensive inventory of SSIS assets, facilitating better governance, discovery, and utilization of data across your organization.

This collector harvests metadata for projects, packages, control flow/data flow executables, and much more.

Power BI Service Collector enhancements

The Power BI Service Collector has been updated to harvest Power BI Measures (including lineage) and lineage between calculated columns. Additionally, the collector now harvests lineage from Power BI Query statements and supports lineage between upstream data sources configured using ODBC connections.

Databricks Collector performance enhancements and external locations

A number of performance improvements were made to the Databricks Collector when harvesting tags on Databricks tables and lineage metadata from Unity Catalog. Users may see up to 80% improvement depending on the shape/weight of their Databricks instance. The Databricks Collector has also been updated to harvest external locations (Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 and Amazon S3).
