Course Content

Course AZ-301T01-A: Designing for Identity and Security (1 Day)

Preparation:
It is suggested that students complete the following supplemental MOOC content before attending the instructor-led course.

Module 1: Managing Security & Identity for Azure Solutions
This module discusses both security and identity within the context of Azure. For security, this module reviews the various options for monitoring security, the options available for securing data and the options for securing application secrets. For identity, this module focuses specifically on Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) and the various features available such as Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), Managed Service Identity, Azure AD Connect, ADFS and Azure AD B2B/B2C.

Lab : Securing Secrets in Azure

Module 2: Integrating SaaS Services Available on the Azure Platform
This module introduces multiple SaaS services available in Azure that are available for integration into existing Azure solutions. These services include Cognitive Services, Bot Service, Machine Learning and Media Services.

Lab : Deploying Service Instances as Components of Overall Azure Solutions

Course AZ-301T02-A: Designing a Data Platform Solution (1 Day)

Preparation:
It is suggested that students complete the following supplemental MOOC content before attending the instructor-led course.

Module 1: Backing Azure Solutions with Azure Storage
This module describes how many Azure services use the Azure Storage service as a backing store for other application solution in Azure. The module dives into critical considerations when using Azure Storage as a supplemental service for an all-up Azure solution.

Module 2: Comparing Database Options in Azure
This module compares the various relational and non-relational data storage options available in Azure. Options are explored as groups such as relational databases (Azure SQL Database, MySQL, and PostgreSQL on Azure), non-relational (Azure Cosmos DB, Storage Tables), streaming (Stream Analytics) and storage (Data Factory, Data Warehouse, Data Lake).

Lab : Deploying Database Instances in Azure

Module 3: Monitoring & Automating Azure Solutions
This module covers the monitoring and automation solutions available after an Azure solution has been architected, designed and possibly deployed. The module reviews services that are used to
monitor individual applications, the Azure platform, and networked components. This module also covers automation and backup options to enable business-continuity scenarios for solutions hosted in Azure.
