Add a platform-level connector for Microsoft Azure Fabric lakehouse

We would like to establish the connection between WKC and Microsoft Azure fabric lakehouse. The purpose is to pull the metadata from this MS platform and catalog using IBM's WKC platform. This is the top need of our business. We would like to have a direct connector avaliable in cpd platform connector to make it seamless.

    Certain Companies such as ours, uses Power BI for reporting and WKC for cataloging and governance. As MS presented Fabric, an end to end solution for data analyst, scientist and engineers, built on the concept of OneLake, that can be designed using the medallion Architecture (Raw, transformed and Curated lakehouses), it becomes important to use a data cataloging and discovery tool. Microsoft is advertising its cataloging and data discovery tool called Purview as a separate product, that is not included in Fabric. The idea of connecting Azure Fabric Lakehouses to WKC (VIA ICPD) would be beneficial to users that would like to keep with WKC and are not willing to purchase Purview.
