    Why is this still marked as "NEED-FEEDBACK"? It's in the SDW section and was indicated as being SDW in May (see below).

    In a recent web talk Kuber Sharma recommended using Polybase as a data lake interface. This recommendation should be reconsidered as without partitioning it isn't viable. All data lakes partition.

    Even though Al was a bit harsh - understandably so if he's blocked, I agree. This is basic functionality for anyone using data stored in Hadoop or anything even Hadoop like. You all should take a look at what AWS is doing with Glue. It's a shared meta-store. You create a table once and you can read it in several different DB engines. A table in Glue can be queried in Redshift (SQL DW), EMR (HDInsight), and Athena (Azure ain't got anything even close). When implemented well, you wouldn't even need to create the external tables in SQL DW. They'd already be there when you cranked up the cluster.
