The best presentation software in 2023
These powerpoint alternatives go beyond the basics..
The latest presentation apps have made it easier than ever to format slides and create professional-looking slideshows without giving off a "this is a template" vibe. Even standard PowerPoint alternatives have updated key features to make it easier than ever to collaborate and create presentations quickly, so you can spend more time prepping for your actual presentation.
If, like me, you've been using Google Slides unquestioningly for years, it's a whole new world out there. The newest crop of online presentation tools go way beyond the classic slideshow experience, with new features to keep your audience's attention, streamline the creation process with AI, and turn slide decks into videos and interactive conversations.
I've been testing these apps for the past few years, and this time, I spent several days tinkering with the top presentation software solutions out there to bring you the best of the best.
The best presentation software
Beautiful.ai for AI-powered design
Prezi for non-linear, conversational presentations
Powtoon for video presentations
Genially for interactive, presenter-less presentations
Pitch for collaborating with your team on presentations
Zoho Show for a simple presentation app
Gamma for generative AI features
What makes the best presentation app?
How we evaluate and test apps.
All of our best apps roundups are written by humans who've spent much of their careers using, testing, and writing about software. We spend dozens of hours researching and testing apps, using each app as it's intended to be used and evaluating it against the criteria we set for the category. We're never paid for placement in our articles from any app or for links to any site—we value the trust readers put in us to offer authentic evaluations of the categories and apps we review. For more details on our process, read the full rundown of how we select apps to feature on the Zapier blog .
When looking for the best presentation apps, I wanted utility players. After all, slideshows are used for just about everything, from pitch decks and product launches to class lectures and church sermons. With that in mind, here's what I was looking for:
Pre-built templates. The best presentation tools should have attractive, professional-looking templates to build presentations in a hurry.
Sharing and collaboration options. Whether you plan to share your webinar slides later, or you just want to collaborate with a coworker on a presentation, it should be easy to share files and collaborate in real-time.
Flexibility and customization options. Templates are great, but top presentation apps should enable you to customize just about everything—giving you the flexibility to build exactly what you need.
Affordability. Creating compelling presentations is important, but you shouldn't have to bust your budget to make it happen. With capable free tools on the market, affordability is a top consideration.
Standalone functionality. There's no reason to use multiple tools when one can do it all, so I didn't test any apps that require and work on top of another presentation app like PowerPoint or Google Slides.
Familiar, deck-based UI. For our purposes here, I only tested software that uses slides, with the familiar deck-based editor you expect from a "presentation" tool (versus, for example, a video creation app).
While many apps now offer AI features in one way or another, I found many of these features to be lacking still—they're often slow, struggle to pull in relevant imagery, and yield wildly inconsistent designs. For that reason, I opted not to make AI features a strict requirement (for now!), and I've still included apps that don't offer AI. (Of course, if you opt for one of those, you can still easily get AI-generated images from a separate tool and copy them into your presentation app of choice.)
Beyond that, I also looked for presentation apps that brought something unique to the table—features above and beyond what you can get for free from a legacy solution like PowerPoint or Google Slides. (And I opted not to test any brand new apps that are still in beta, since there are so many established options out there.)
Here's what my testing workflow looked like:
I went through any onboarding or guided tutorials.
I created a new deck, scanning through all available templates, noting how well-designed they were (and which were free versus paid).
I added new slides, deleted slides, edited text and images, and played around with other content types.
I changed presentation design settings, like color schemes and background images.
I reviewed and tested the sharing and collaboration options.
I tested out presenter view (when available).
After my first round of testing, I went back into the top performers to test any unique or niche features like AI, brand settings, interactive content, and more. With that, these are the best presentation apps I found—each one really brings something different or radically easy to the table.
The best presentation software: at a glance
The best free presentation software, canva (web, windows, mac, android, ios).
Excellent free plan
Tons of amazing templates for all use cases
The Magic Design AI tool is still inconsistent and not super impressive
Canva offers one of the most robust free plans of all the presentation apps I tested. The app delays account creation until after you've created your first design, so you can get started building your presentation in seconds. Choose from an almost overwhelming number of beautiful templates (nearly all available for free), including those designed specifically for education or business use cases.
Anyone who's accidentally scrolled too far and been bumped to the next slide will appreciate Canva's editor interface, which eliminates that problem altogether with a smooth scroll that doesn't jump around. Choose from a handful of preset animations to add life to your presentations, or browse the library of audio and video files available to add. And Canva also has a number of options for sharing your presentation, including adding collaborators to your team, sharing directly to social media, and even via QR code.
Present directly from Canva, and let audience members submit their questions via Canva Live. Once you share a link to invite audience members to your presentation, they can send questions for you to answer. As the presenter, you'll see them pop up in your presenter view window, so you can keep the audience engaged and your presentation clear. Alternatively, record a presentation with a talking head bubble—you can even use an AI presenter here—to share remotely.
Canvas has added a number of AI-powered tools , but I wasn't super impressed by them yet. When I asked the Magic Design tool to generate a presentation from scratch, for example, the result was a bunch of unrelated images, inconsistent design, and surface-level copy. These features will likely improve in time, but for now, you're better off starting from one of Canva's many great templates.
Canva pricing: Free plan available; paid plans start at $119.99/year for 1 user and include additional features like Brand Kit, premium templates and stock assets, and additional AI-powered design tools.
The best presentation app for AI-powered design
Beautiful.ai (web, mac, windows).
True AI design
No fussing around with alignment
Still allows for customization
No free plan
Generative AI features aren't great yet
If you're like me, editing granular spacing issues is the absolute worst part of building a presentation. Beautiful.ai uses artificial intelligence to take a lot of the hassle and granular design requirements out of the presentation process, so you can focus on the content of a presentation without sacrificing professional design. If I needed to make presentations on a regular basis, this is the app I'd use.
Many apps have recently added AI design features, but Beautiful.ai has been doing it for years—and they've perfected the UX of AI design, ensuring the tool's reign as the most streamlined and user-friendly option for AI design.
The editor is a little different from most presentation apps, but it's still intuitive—and you'll start off with a quick two-minute tutorial. When creating a new slide, scroll through "inspiration slides" to find a layout you like; once you choose, the app will pull the layout and automatically adapt it to match the design of the rest of your presentation.
With 10 themes, several templated slides, over 40 fully-designed templates, and 23 different color palettes to choose from, Beautiful.ai strikes a perfect balance between automation and customization.
While Beautiful.ai doesn't offer a free plan, paid plans are reasonably priced and offer sharing and collaboration options that rival collab-focused apps like Google Slides. And speaking of Google, you can connect Beautiful.ai with Google Drive to save all your presentations there.
Note: I did test the newly released generative AI feature (called DesignerBot) and felt it wasn't much to write home about. It's great for adding individual slides to an existing presentation—automatically choosing the best layout and matching the design to the rest of the deck—but as with most other apps, it struggled to generate a quality presentation from scratch.
Beautiful.ai pricing: Plans start at $12/month for unlimited slides, AI content generation, viewer analytics, and more. Upgrade to a Team plan for $40/user/month to get extra collaboration and workspace features and custom brand controls.
If you're a founder looking for an AI presentation tool for your pitch deck, Slidebean is a great Beautiful.ai alternative for startups. The app offers a number of templates; a unique, content-first outline editor; and AI design help that you can toggle on or off for each slide. I didn't include it on the list mainly because of the price: the free plan is quite limited, and the paid all-access plan starts at $228/year.
The best presentation app for conversational presentations
Prezi (web, mac, windows, ios, android).
Doesn't restrict you to standard presentation structure
Lots of customization options
Prezi Video lets you display a presentation right over your webcam video
Steep learning curve
Struggling to squeeze information into a basic, linear presentation? Give Prezi a try. Unlike nearly all other presentation apps on the market, Prezi Present doesn't restrict the structure of your presentation to a straight line. The editor focuses on topics and subtopics and allows you to arrange them any way you want, so you can create a more conversational flow of information.
With the structural flexibility, you still get all the same customization features you expect from top presentation software, including fully-editable templates. There's a learning curve if you're unfamiliar with non-linear presentations, but templates offer a great jumping-off point, and Prezi's editor does a good job of making the process more approachable.
Plus, Prezi comes with two other apps: Prezi Design and Prezi Video. Prezi Video helps you take remote presentations to a new level. You can record a video where the presentation elements are displayed right over your webcam feed. Record and save the video to share later, or connect with your video conferencing tool of choice (including Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Google Meet) to present live.
Prezi pricing: Free 14-day trial and a free plan that includes up to 5 visual projects; paid plans start at $5/month and include additional features like private presentations and Prezi Present.
The best presentation app for video presentations
Powtoon (web, ios, android).
Timing automatically changes based on the content on the slide
Can toggle between slideshow and video
Can orient presentation as horizontal, vertical, or square
Limited free plan
Powtoon makes it easy to create engaging videos by orienting the editor around a slide deck. Editing a Powtoon feels just like editing a presentation, but by the time you finish, you have a professional video.
You can edit your slides at any time, and when you hit play, a video plays through your deck—the feel is almost like an animated explainer video. Each slide includes the animations you choose and takes up as much time as is needed based on the content on the slide. Powtoon figures the timing automatically, and you can see in the bottom-right of the editor how much time is used on your current slide versus the total presentation. If you ever want to present as a slide deck, just toggle between Slideshow and Movie.
You'll likely need to subscribe to a paid plan to get the most out of Powtoon—like creating videos longer than three minutes, downloading them as MP4 files, and white-labeling your presentations—but doing so won't break the bank. Plus, you'll unlock tons of templates complete with animations and soundtracks.
One of my favorite Powtoon features is the ability to orient your video: you can choose horizontal orientation (like a normal presentation) or opt for vertical (for mobile) or square (for social media). When your presentation is ready, you can publish straight to YouTube, Wistia, Facebook Ads, and any number of other locations.
Powtoon pricing: Limited free plan available; paid plans start at $20/month and include white-labeling, priority support, additional storage, and more.
The best presentation app for interactive presentations
Don't need a presenter (it's interactive)
You can set universal branding guidelines
Unlimited creations on the free plan
Free plan has some limitations worth looking into (e.g., can only make public presentations)
While many presentation apps are built for presenter-led decks, Genially 's interactive features and animated templates make it easy to build a self-led presentation. A variety of interactive buttons allow you to show viewers additional context on hover, have them skip to any page of your deck, and let them navigate to external links.
This presentation program offers a bunch of searchable templates, including some for business proposals, reports, social media presentations, and more (though most of those are available on premium plans only). Genially also includes Smart blocks —templated blocks of content for elements like data visualizations and image galleries.
My favorite feature is the brand settings. Premium users can set universal branding guidelines that include your logo, color scheme, fonts, images, and backgrounds, among other options. Think of them like a custom template, created and customized by you, that the whole team can use. Once set, your team can easily create on-brand presentations that automatically apply your brand settings, without even thinking about it.
Plus, Genially supports additional content like training materials, infographics, and interactive images—all subject to your brand presets.
Genially pricing: Free plan available with unlimited creations and views and access to templates; paid plans start at $7.49/month and include additional download options, privacy controls, offline viewing, premium templates, and more.
The best presentation app for collaborating with your team
Pitch (web, mac, windows, ios, android).
Google levels of collaboration
Assign slides to specific team members
Start live video calls straight from decks
User interface is a little different than you're used to
Need to collaborate on presentations with your team? Pitch is a Google Slides alternative that gets the job done. As far as decks go, Pitch includes all the beautifully-designed templates, customizability, and ease of use you expect from a top-notch presentation tool. But the app really shines when you add your team.
The right-hand sidebar is all about project management and collaboration: you can set and update the status of your deck, assign entire presentations or individual slides to team members, plus comment, react, or add notes. Save custom templates to make future presentations even easier and faster.
You can also invite collaborators from outside your company to work with you on individual decks. And if you opt for a paid plan, Pitch introduces workspace roles, shared private folders, and version history.
The "Go live" feature is a personal favorite—with just a click on the camera icon in the top-right, you can start a live video call. Any team members who open the presentation can hop in and collaborate in real-time.
Pitch pricing: Free plan offers unlimited presentations, custom templates, and live video collaboration; paid plans start at $8/user/month for additional workspace features, presentation analytics, and more.
The best simple presentation app
Zoho show (web, ios, android, chrome).
Zoho Show pros:
Simple and easy to use
Version history and ability to lock slides
Zoho Show cons:
Templates are pretty basic
If you're looking for a simple, yet capable presentation app that's a step up from Google Slides, Zoho Show is a great option. It's completely free to use, offers a clean, intuitive editor, and includes a number of great templates.
While the handful of "Themes" offered are on the basic side, Zoho templates boast a more modern and professional design than much of what Google Slides or PowerPoint offer. And I love that you can set the font and color scheme for the whole template, right from the start.
The app doesn't skimp on collaboration or shareability either. You can invite collaborators via email or shareable link, and comments and version history make it easy to work together on presentations. Once you're ready to share, you can even broadcast your presentation to a remote audience right from within Zoho. Plus, you can one-click lock slides to prevent any more editing or hide individual slides to customize your presentation for different audiences.
You can even connect Zoho Show to Zapier , so you can do things like automatically create a presentation when something happens in one of the other apps you use most.
Zapier is the leader in no-code automation—integrating with 5,000+ apps from partners like Google, Salesforce, and Microsoft. Build secure, automated systems for your business-critical workflows across your organization's technology stack. Learn more .

The best presentation app for generative AI
Creates fully fleshed-out presentations from a prompt
Can still manually edit the presentation
Not as much granular customization
I tested a lot of apps claiming to use AI to up your presentation game, and Gamma 's generative features were head and shoulders above the crowd.
Simply give the app a topic—or upload an outline, notes, or any other document or article—approve the outline, and pick a theme. The app will take it from there and create a fully fleshed-out presentation. It's far from perfect, but Gamma produced the most useful jumping-off point of all the AI presentation apps I tested.
Here's the key: Gamma is much more geared toward the iterative, chatbot experience familiar to ChatGPT users. Click on the Edit with AI button at the top of the right-hand menu to open the chat, and you'll see suggested prompts—or you can type in your own requests for how Gamma should alter the presentation.
Once you've done all you can with prompts, simply close the chat box to manually add the finishing touches. While you do sacrifice some granular customizability in exchange for the AI features, you can still choose your visual theme, change slide layouts, format text, and add any images, videos, or even app and web content.
Gamma pricing: Free plan includes unlimited users, 1 custom theme, 400 AI deck credits, and basic view analytics; upgrade to the Pro plan ("coming soon," as of this writing) for $10/user/month to get additional AI credits, advanced view analytics, custom fonts, and more.
What about the old standbys?
You might notice a few major presentation players aren't on this list, including OGs Microsoft PowerPoint, Apple Keynote, and Google Slides. These apps are perfectly adequate for creating basic presentations, and they're free if you have a Windows or Mac device or a Google account.
I didn't include them on the list because the presentation space has really developed in the last several years, and after testing them out, I found these behemoths haven't kept pace. If they weren't made by Microsoft/Apple/Google, I might not even be mentioning them. They're pretty basic tools, they're behind the curve when it comes to templates (both quantity and design), and they don't offer any uniquely valuable features like robust team collaboration, branding controls, video, and so on.
Some of these companies (think: Microsoft and Google) are openly working on some pretty impressive-sounding AI features, but they haven't been widely released to the public yet. Rest assured, I'm watching this space, and the next time we update this article, I'll retest tools like PowerPoint and Google Slides to see what new features are available.
In any case, if you're reading this, you're probably looking for an alternative that allows you to move away from one of the big 3, and as the presentation platforms featured above show, there's a ton to gain—in terms of features, usability, and more—when you do.

15 Best Presentation Websites Alternatives to PowerPoint in 2023
15 best investor pitch deck examples from successful startups.
What is a presentation website?
Presentation websites are applications created to present information as a slide show. Slideshows are presentations that comprise charts, images, videos, and the standard text. They ensure that data is displayed clearly, summarized, and readable to the audience.
Slideshows work best when presented on a projector or a big screen. Intermittently, some users might print out slide shows as documents, but this is ill-suited for that purpose.
Any presentation tool must have three fundamental functions:
- A text editor: to input the contents of the presentation.
- An import function: to insert and manipulate images and other content.
- A slide-show or presenter mode: that displays the content in a nice, formatted way.
Slide shows often consist of a combination of text, video, images and charts. Their primary function is displaying clear, readable and summarized data to an audience.
Most presentations are shared and presented on a larger screen or through a digital projector. In rare occasions, slide presentations are printed out as a replacement for text documents, but this is a really inefficient way to review data, that Garr Reynolds calls ‘ PresDocs ’ (Garr Reynolds is the author of Presentation Zen, one of the most important go-to reference for successful presentations).

What makes the best presentation website?
When looking for the best presentation apps, there is a need to consider not just pitch decks but also school lectures, religious sermons, and adverts. Therefore, an excellent presentation app should be affordable, have enough sharing and collaboration options, have a range of pre-built templates, and be flexible.
Visualization in presentations
A presentation without visual aids can be very boring. It's hard to remember things if they are just words on a page or screen. But with visuals, people retain information much better. So, ensure you have some great images to help your audience understand what you're talking about.
Consider using infographics if you want to add some spice to your presentations. Infographics are visually appealing ways to present complex information in a simple way. They can include charts, graphs, maps, diagrams, timelines, etc. Many online tools are available to create them, including Piktochart , Visually, and Canva .
Presentation or visualization names of websites
Presentation websites allow you to create amazing presentations through the use of web technologies.
There are many cases when you might need to create a presentation for a particular purpose. Creating a presentation on PowerPoint is easy, but that doesn't mean it's the best option. That's why we'll talk about how to create a presentation without PowerPoint and how to get the best out of these presentation website alternatives.
However, there exist today, numerous applications, software, and websites that can help create stunning designs and art for presentations other than PowerPoint. From Slidebean to Google Slides, there are more than enough presentation apps to help you. No matter your tastes, needs, and specifications, there is always one that fits your bill. Read on to find out more.
What makes a great PowerPoint Alternative?
Not everyone prefers PowerPoint. Why? Because it can feel and look clunky at times. But not every PowerPoint alternative works the same way. To find the best one for you, look out for features such as:
- Ability to present online and offline.
- Sharing and collaboration features.
- Features that allow for easy interpretation and assimilation of data.
- Highly customizable templates.
- Good transition and animation capabilities.
- Work import capabilities.
Best Presentation Websites Alternatives to PowerPoint
1. slidebean presentation.
Slidebean is a presentation website software that uses the online approach to operate design software and it is referred to as one of the most spontaneous presentation tools profitable today.
Slidebean offers numerous presentation templates for many slideshow presentations, ranging from pitch decks to sales proposals. The templates are highly customizable, offering a wide range of designs.
Slidebean also offers a pioneering approach to sharing slideshows by creating a link where your slides can be reached when you are on a different device. This is very useful when you are without your device, and slides created on Slidebean automatically scale to the screen size used. The online format also allows team collaboration and offers metrics and analytics when you need them.
This helps you know what you can change when needed. These figures are primarily helpful when prospecting different clients; they make you aware of who is looking at what and where you need to make changes to both design and speech before your final interviews.

Prezi is a web-based presentation tool with a strong focus on animation. While it might need some creativity and design skill, its output always beats mainstream. Prezi helps create visually stunning slideshows and boasts a feature no other software has – presenting content over a user's video feed.
However, as said above, Prezi needs some technical design skill, and when that is missing, the output might not be so great.
3. Google Slides
With the popularity of Google, it's no surprise that Google Slides is one popular presentation app and by extension, an alternative to PowerPoint.
While the app is free as long as you have a Google account, a consensus is that it is basic and extremely limited.
Visme is considered a complete package when it comes to online presentation software. Alongside having high customization features, it is also a good choice for graphic
Spacing issues are one of several problems that tire out designers. You just do not know what to do with all that free space. Fortunately, that is what this Beautiful app was created to solve. Utilizing Artificial Intelligence, the app handles all the spacing issues and gives you enough time to focus on your presentation content. This makes for an almost perfect balance of customization and automation.
Keynote is the presentation tool preloaded in Apple products. Like Google Slides, Keynote is easy to operate for people with a previous experience with PowerPoint. While the interface is friendly, the not-labeled functions and basic features give a too-minimalist experience.
The most obvious disadvantage? It is only usable for Mac users and not web-based, eliminating the collaboration and sharing option.
Moovly is considered an animation presentation tool than a traditional PowerPoint replacement. Its main benefit is the smooth incorporation of animations into presentations and numerous templates to choose from. Also, it is online-based, so cloud saving and collaboration are a yes-yes. It is free to use, but some components require paid accounts.
Mentimeter is a new presentation tool with the mouthwatering feature of audience engagement and the offerings of a standard presentation tool. Mentimeter also has a survey section (hence the "meter") and good templates that can help design your slides, whether formal or animated.
Mentimeter possesses two collaboration features named Collaboration and Mentimote. As the features suggest, this presentation tool focuses on the audience rather than the user.
9. Zoho Show
Zoho Show as a presentation platform found in a Zoho Office suite, is a handy tool, especially for Zoho Suite users.
Zoho Show offers excellent transitions, animations, effects, collaboration and editing. It also possesses a comment feature for slides, online publishing, and online broadcasts and discussions.
A presentation software launched in 2020, Pitch is already referred to as a “PowerPoint killer”. It was created to help non-designers (or beginners) create excellent pitch decks.
Pitch has an extensive library of presentation templates, but this is just one of its benefits. This software emphasizes collaboration and even includes built-in video collaboration for remote teams to work together. Pitch presentations can also be integrated with Google Analytics, Google Sheets, and similar applications.
This cloud-based presentation tool proffers a user-friendly alternative to PowerPoint. Its sleek editor interface allows you to add your preferred background images, import a variety of designs, and collaborate easily with others. It is known to be very user-friendly.
Slides offers access and edit features from any device, as long as it is internet-connected. It also helps manage privacy rights, allows presentations offline, offers analytics management, and allows for adding GIFs and images.
However, it is limited in slide options and templates and does not offer graphic inclusions.
12. Microsoft Sway
Funny that Microsoft decided to create an alternative to its own product. However, as amusing as it seems, it is a smart move, considering the fact that it has everything PowerPoint does not. Sway is cloud-based and can be opened via Microsoft app accounts such as Outlook.
Sway’s color and font customization have a range of images. It enables storyline editing and allows for multiple language usage. However, it does not offer graphic and visual data.
13. Mind Maps
Mind Maps is a presentation tool that offers a different mode of displaying files, using visual symbols to show relationships between different concepts, and offering an over-the-top map that can be broken down into details for further understanding. It allows for a top-to-bottom plan that moves distinctly from part to whole and vice versa. This makes it easier to handle details for each sub-topic at all levels.
SlideRocket, launched in 2008, was acquired by ClearSlide and is now named after the new company, although many people still refer to the tool by its old name. ClearSlide offers features that mainly focus on the analytics and metric part of presentations. While the tool provides some basic design features, it also allows for easy import of existing slideshows. All features are for paid accounts, and the closest thing to a free account is the 30-day free trial you get when you register.
Animatron is another tool that offers online free presentation design services in a very short time. Over hundreds of preloaded animated objects can be customized to your taste and specifications.
With a simple whiteboard animator interface, Animatron helps engage your audience with visual stories and gives a feel different from the usual slideshow feel.
Another helpful feature Animatron offers is real-time collaboration, which allows multiple users to work on a job simultaneously. And the best part, it offers a free plan.
How do I create a presentation without PowerPoint?
Numerous alternatives to PowerPoint are on the Internet. The issue is not about creating a presentation without PowerPoint but getting that presentation tool or software that can help achieve your goal.
While many tools offer free accounts to peruse and utilize online and offline presentations, some do not. This does not mean the free tools are not good, rather, it is just a marketing idea.
What can I use instead of PowerPoint for free?
Here are some presentation tools you can make use of instead of PowerPoint;
WPS Office boasts functionality and a well-designed, along with offline document capabilities. Sometimes accused of having very similar features to Microsoft Office, users can efficiently work on PowerPoint files. It also offers many templates. However, collaboration might be a bit stressful.
WPS Office is available on Android, Web Windows, iOS, Linux, and macOS.
If there is one thing Canva has, it is templates. Canva makes PowerPoint look simple with a vast array of templates for every specification. If you have a problem with making decisions, do not use Canva.

Introducing Microsoft Fabric: Data analytics for the era of AI
By Arun Ulagaratchagan Corporate Vice President, Azure Data
Posted on May 23, 2023 10 min read
Today’s world is awash with data—ever-streaming from the devices we use, the applications we build, and the interactions we have. Organizations across every industry have harnessed this data to digitally transform and gain competitive advantages. And now, as we enter a new era defined by AI, this data is becoming even more important.
Generative AI and language model services, such as Azure OpenAI Service, are enabling customers to use and create everyday AI experiences that are reinventing how employees spend their time. Powering organization-specific AI experiences requires a constant supply of clean data from a well-managed and highly integrated analytics system. But most organizations’ analytics systems are a labyrinth of specialized and disconnected services.
And it’s no wonder given the massively fragmented data and AI technology market with hundreds of vendors and thousands of services. Customers must stitch together a complex set of disconnected services from multiple vendors themselves and incur the costs and burdens of making these services function together.
Introducing Microsoft Fabric
Today we are unveiling Microsoft Fabric —an end-to-end, unified analytics platform that brings together all the data and analytics tools that organizations need. Fabric integrates technologies like Azure Data Factory, Azure Synapse Analytics, 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.
Watch a quick overview:
What sets Microsoft Fabric apart?
Fabric is an end-to-end analytics product that addresses every aspect of an organization’s analytics needs. But there are five areas that really set Fabric apart from the rest of the market:
1. Fabric is a complete analytics platform
Every analytics project has multiple subsystems. Every subsystem needs a different array of capabilities, often requiring products from multiple vendors. Integrating these products can be a complex, fragile, and expensive endeavor.
With Fabric, customers can use a single product with a unified experience and architecture that provides all the capabilities required for a developer to extract insights from data and present it to the business user. And by delivering the experience as software as a service (SaaS), everything is automatically integrated and optimized, and users can sign up within seconds and get real business value within minutes.
Fabric empowers every team in the analytics process with the role-specific experiences they need, so data engineers, data warehousing professionals, data scientists, data analysts, and business users feel right at home.
Fabric comes with seven core workloads:
- Data Factory (preview) provides more than 150 connectors to cloud and on-premises data sources, drag-and-drop experiences for data transformation, and the ability to orchestrate data pipelines.
- Synapse Data Engineering (preview) enables great authoring experiences for Spark, instant start with live pools, and the ability to collaborate.
- Synapse Data Science (preview) provides an end-to-end workflow for data scientists to build sophisticated AI models, collaborate easily, and train, deploy, and manage machine learning models.
- Synapse Data Warehousing (preview) provides a converged lake house and data warehouse experience with industry-leading SQL performance on open data formats.
- Synapse Real-Time Analytics (preview) enables developers to work with data streaming in from the Internet of Things (IoT) devices, telemetry, logs, and more, and analyze massive volumes of semi-structured data with high performance and low latency.
- Power BI in Fabric provides industry-leading visualization and AI-driven analytics that enable business analysts and business users to gain insights from data. The Power BI experience is also deeply integrated into Microsoft 365, providing relevant insights where business users already work.
- Data Activator (coming soon) provides real-time detection and monitoring of data and can trigger notifications and actions when it finds specified patterns in data—all in a no-code experience.
You can try these experiences today by signing up for the Microsoft Fabric free trial .
2. Fabric is lake-centric and open
Today’s data lakes can be messy and complicated, making it hard for customers to create, integrate, manage, and operate data lakes. And once they are operational, multiple data products using different proprietary data formats on the same data lake can cause significant data duplication and concerns about vendor lock-in.
OneLake—The OneDrive for data
Fabric comes with a SaaS, multi-cloud data lake called OneLake that is built-in and automatically available to every Fabric tenant. All Fabric workloads are automatically wired into OneLake, just like all Microsoft 365 applications are wired into OneDrive. Data is organized in an intuitive data hub, and automatically indexed for discovery, sharing, governance, and compliance.
OneLake serves developers, business analysts, and business users alike, helping eliminate pervasive and chaotic data silos created by different developers provisioning and configuring their own isolated storage accounts. Instead, OneLake provides a single, unified storage system for all developers, where discovery and sharing of data are easy with policy and security settings enforced centrally. At the API layer, OneLake is built on and fully compatible with Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 (ADLSg2), instantly tapping into ADLSg2’s vast ecosystem of applications, tools, and developers.
A key capability of OneLake is “Shortcuts.” OneLake allows easy sharing of data between users and applications without having to move and duplicate information unnecessarily. Shortcuts allow OneLake to virtualize data lake storage in ADLSg2, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), and Google Storage (coming soon), enabling developers to compose and analyze data across clouds.
Open data formats across analytics offerings
Fabric is deeply committed to open data formats across all its workloads and tiers. Fabric treats Delta on top of Parquet files as a native data format that is the default for all workloads. This deep commitment to a common open data format means that customers need to load the data into the lake only once and all the workloads can operate on the same data, without having to separately ingest it. It also means that OneLake supports structured data of any format and unstructured data, giving customers total flexibility.
By adopting OneLake as our store and Delta and Parquet as the common format for all workloads, we offer customers a data stack that’s unified at the most fundamental level. Customers do not need to maintain different copies of data for databases, data lakes, data warehousing, business intelligence, or real-time analytics. Instead, a single copy of the data in OneLake can directly power all the workloads.
Managing data security (table, column, and row levels) across different data engines can be a persistent nightmare for customers. Fabric will provide a universal security model that is managed in OneLake, and all engines enforce it uniformly as they process queries and jobs. This model is coming soon.
3. Fabric is powered by AI
We are infusing Fabric with Azure OpenAI Service at every layer to help customers unlock the full potential of their data, enabling developers to leverage the power of generative AI against their data and assisting business users to find insights in their data. With Copilot in Microsoft Fabric in every data experience, users can use conversational language to create dataflows and data pipelines, generate code and entire functions, build machine learning models, or visualize results. Customers can even create their own conversational language experiences that combine Azure OpenAI Service models and their data and publish them as plug-ins.
Copilot in Microsoft Fabric builds on our existing commitments to data security and privacy in the enterprise. Copilot inherits an organization’s security, compliance, and privacy policies. Microsoft does not use organizations’ tenant data to train the base language models that power Copilot.
Copilot in Microsoft Fabric will be coming soon. Stay tuned to the Microsoft Fabric blog for the latest updates and public release date for Copilot in Microsoft Fabric.
4. Fabric empowers every business user
Customers aspire to drive a data culture where everyone in their organization is making better decisions based on data. To help our customers foster this culture, Fabric deeply integrates with the Microsoft 365 applications people use every day.
Power BI is a core part of Fabric and is already infused across Microsoft 365. Through Power BI’s deep integrations with popular applications such as Excel, Microsoft Teams, PowerPoint, and SharePoint, relevant data from OneLake is easily discoverable and accessible to users right from Microsoft 365—helping customers drive more value from their data
With Fabric, you can turn your Microsoft 365 apps into hubs for uncovering and applying insights. For example, users in Microsoft Excel can directly discover and analyze data in OneLake and generate a Power BI report with a click of a button. In Teams, users can infuse data into their everyday work with embedded channels, chat, and meeting experiences. Business users can bring data into their presentations by embedding live Power BI reports directly in Microsoft PowerPoint. Power BI is also natively integrated with SharePoint, enabling easy sharing and dissemination of insights. And with Microsoft Graph Data Connect (preview), Microsoft 365 data is natively integrated into OneLake so customers can unlock insights on their customer relationships, business processes, security and compliance, and people productivity.
5. Fabric reduces costs through unified capacities
Today’s analytics systems typically combine products from multiple vendors in a single project. This results in computing capacity provisioned in multiple systems like data integration, data engineering, data warehousing, and business intelligence. When one of the systems is idle, its capacity cannot be used by another system causing significant wastage.
Purchasing and managing resources is massively simplified with Fabric. Customers can purchase a single pool of computing that powers all Fabric workloads. With this all-inclusive approach, customers can create solutions that leverage all workloads freely without any friction in their experience or commerce. The universal compute capacities significantly reduce costs, as any unused compute capacity in one workload can be utilized by any of the workloads.
Explore how our customers are already using Microsoft Fabric
Ferguson is a leading distributor of plumbing, HVAC, and waterworks supplies, operating across North America. And by using Fabric to consolidate their analytics stack into a unified solution, they are hoping to reduce their delivery time and improve efficiency.
“ Microsoft Fabric reduces the delivery time by removing the overhead of using multiple disparate services. By consolidating the necessary data provisioning, transformation, modeling, and analysis services into one UI, the time from raw data to business intelligence is significantly reduced. Fabric meaningfully impacts Ferguson’s data storage, engineering, and analytics groups since all these workloads can now be done in the same UI for faster delivery of insights .” —George Rasco, Principal Database Architect, Ferguson
See Fabric in action at Ferguson:
T-Mobile, one of the largest providers of wireless communications services in the United States, is focused on driving disruption that creates innovation and better customer experiences in wireless and beyond. With Fabric, T-Mobile hopes they can take their platform and data-driven decision-making to the next level.
“ T-Mobile loves our customers and providing them with new Un-Carrier benefits! We think that Fabric’s upcoming abilities will help us eliminate data silos, making it easier for us to unlock new insights into how we show our customers even more love. Querying across the lakehouse and warehouse from a single engine—that’s a game changer. Spark compute on-demand, rather than waiting for clusters to spin up, is a huge improvement for both standard data engineering and advanced analytics. It saves three minutes on every job, and when you’re running thousands of jobs an hour, that really adds up. And being able to easily share datasets across the company is going to eliminate so much data duplication. We’re really looking forward to these new features .” —Geoffrey Freeman, MTS, Data Solutions and Analytics, T-Mobile
Aon provides professional services and management consulting services to a vast global network of customers. With the help of Fabric, Aon hopes that they can consolidate more of their current technology stack and focus on adding more value to their clients.
“ What’s most exciting to me about Fabric is simplifying our existing analytics stack. Currently, there are so many different PaaS services across the board that when it comes to modernization efforts for many developers, Fabric helps simplify that. We can now spend less time building infrastructure and more time adding value to our business .” —Boby Azarbod, Data Services Lead, Aon
What happens to current Microsoft analytics solutions?
Existing Microsoft products such as Azure Synapse Analytics, Azure Data Factory, and Azure Data Explorer will continue to provide a robust, enterprise-grade platform as a service (PaaS) solution for data analytics. Fabric represents an evolution of those offerings in the form of a simplified SaaS solution that can connect to existing PaaS offerings. Customers will be able to upgrade from their current products into Fabric at their own pace.

Visualization in Presentations
Home > PowerPoint Slides > Visualization in Presentations
In this article, you’ll read about an important parameter for slide evaluation which is about visualization in presentations. Presenting your ideas and concepts visually increases clarity of your message for your audience.
Before we learn about the slide-o-meter parameter…
A quick word about the relationship between Assertion and Evidence:
In a PowerPoint slide, there is a clear place for assertion, evidence and explanation of the slide. Here is the pictorial representation of how assertion-evidence model works on slides:
Evidence is a combination of visual representation and verbal explanation.
For a presentation to be effective, the evidence needs to be easily understood. The best way to achieve this is by using visualization and build. We will talk about build in another article.
Why use visualization in presentations?
To answer that, I want you to look at the following two slides. Both of them present the same information. Which of these two slides is easier for you to understand?
Slide 2: Visual Slide with charts and Diagrams on Sales Performance
I am sure you chose the second slide.
Here are the two questions I want you to think about –
- What is the difference between the two slides in presenting the same information?
- What is the specific reason why the second slide is easier to understand?
Here is the difference:
The first slide provides data about sales performance. The second slide provides information about sales performance by capturing the relationship between the data .
- Visualization is the art of capturing relationship between objects
Why capture relationship between objects?
Human brain stores information by forming connection between objects. This web of connection is called ‘schema’. For example, the following may be the web of information in our mind about Mammals.
These connections help the brain to retrieve the stored information quickly, and learn new information by establishing the context easily.
When you use visualization in presentations, you help your audience connect your ideas and objects. This helps them ‘get’ your message and retain your information for a long time.
At this point, we wish to recommend our Visual Presentations eBook , which teaches you a simple yet remarkable process to convey your ideas as visual diagrams. It is a must have book, if you are serious about improving your business presentation skills.
Resouce: FREE DOWNLOAD: As a thank you for going through today’s article, you can download the first 3 chapters from the ‘Visual Presentations – eBook’ for free.
A primer on capturing relationship between objects:
While this short article doesn’t give us enough space to explain the detailed process of creating remarkable visual presentations (That’s why we came up with the eBook), we will give you a quick primer on how to capture relationship between objects.
Start with the information on your bulleted slides. Remove the unnecessary words in each of the bulleted sentences. This will help you find the keywords of your message.
If your bullet point is:
- Most people have a strange habit when it comes to reading on the net. They don’t follow any specific order in reading the pages. They read in a random order.
- Most people have a strange habit when it comes to reading web pages on the net. They don’t follow any specific order in reading the pages. They read in a random order.
Gist: People read web pages in random order.
Once you are clear with the keywords, the next step is to capture the relationship between the keywords. This will help you create the right diagram to represent the relationship.
Here is an example of how to capture the relationship between the keywords:
There is an effective method to capture the relations to help you come up with insightful visuals. We teach you the 3 critical steps for visualization in presentations in the eBook.
You can also read about a rough and ready way to quickly identify the right relationship between objects using the 4 common types of relationships for a shortcut to diagrams .
To summarize the article on visualization in presentations:
- Since our mind stores information as connections, visual diagrams help your audience to ‘get’ your message fast and retain it longer
- To visualize information, start with bulleted sentences and remove the junk words to identify the keywords
- Once you identify the keywords, capture the relationship between keywords in the form of a diagram
