Overview

In this course, students will design various data platform technologies into solutions that are in line with business and technical requirements. This can include on-premises, cloud, and hybrid data scenarios which incorporate relational, No-SQL or Data Warehouse data. They will also learn how to design process architectures using a range of technologies for both streaming and batch data.

The students will also explore how to design data security including data access, data policies and standards. They will also design Azure data solutions which includes the optimization, availability and disaster recovery of big data, batch processing and streaming data solutions.

Please note: Microsoft has retired Azure training from the Software Assurance Training Voucher (SATV) catalogue. From 1st February 2020 we are no longer able to accept SATVs for this course.

Skills Gained

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Design and build secure, scalable and performant solutions in Azure.
  • Deal with the movement of data from on-premises systems into a cloud data warehouse and how it can be automated.
  • Incorporate security into architecture design and discover the tools that Azure provides to help create a secure environment.
  • Scale services to handle load.
  • Design an Azure architecture that is operationally-efficient and minimizes costs by reducing spend.

Key Topics

Module 1: Data Platform Architecture Considerations
In this module, the students will learn how to design and build secure, scalable and performant solutions in Azure by examining the core principles found in every good architecture. They will learn how using key principles throughout your architecture regardless of technology choice, can help you design, build, and continuously improve your architecture for an organizations benefit.

Lessons

  • Core Principles of Creating Architectures
  • Design with Security in Mind
  • Performance and Scalability
  • Design for availability and recoverability
  • Design for efficiency and operations
  • Case Study
