Announcing the Fabric Community

Hello Power BI Community,


Today is the day to celebrate the launch of the new Microsoft Fabric Community!


Microsoft is announcing the new Fabric Community today at Microsoft Build 2023.  Go ahead and register for this event and check out the keynotes from Satya Nadella and Scott Guthrie to learn more about the new Fabric Community and product offerings.


Fabric Community:  Fabric integrates Power BI, Synapse, and Data Factory to offer customers an easy-to-manage modern data, analytics, and BI solution.  The Fabric Community is the place to have technical discussions, engage with data and analytics experts, and learn how decisions can be improved based on data.  Power BI Community members will continue to enjoy all the functionalities available today and will now be joined by Synapse and Data Factory.  As we move forward, we have a new URL for the Fabric Community:


Microsoft Fabric: Fabric is an end-to-end, unified analytics platform that brings together all the data and analytics tools that organizations need. Fabric integrates technologies like Data Factory, Synapse, and Power BI into a single unified product, empowering data, and business professionals alike, to unlock the potential of their data and lay the foundation for the era of AI.  If you want to learn more about Fabric, check out the Fabric Digital Event.


New Domain Name

The Fabric Community brings together all the data and analytics tools that an organization needs into a single unified product community. There is a new unified URL reflecting the new Fabric Community domain that now aligns across the Fabric Community and Power BI, Synapse, and Data Factory experiences.


User Group Experience

Power BI User Groups have now been expanded into Fabric User Groups.  Explore the Fabric User Groups.


Fabric Ideas

The Fabric Ideas site is a unified experience that includes ideas for Power BI, Synapse and Data Factory.  It is the single place to submit and vote on product ideas and features posted by other users.  Fabric Ideas are actively reviewed by the product teams when planning updates.  Your suggestions and votes will always make a difference. 



In the Microsoft Fabric announcement, it was shared that it will automatically be enabled in Power BI tenants.  What does that imply to be "enabled"?  Does that imply it will be available for consumption or that it will be used by the service and I would incur consumption charges?
