Virtual Instructor-Led Training (V-ILT)

Virtual instruction environments are designed to simulate the traditional classroom or learning experience. Instructor-led training is still the number one delivery method of choice because it allows you to interact and discuss the training material, either individually or in a group setting, and you gain access to expert knowledge from certified instructors. This form of guided learning is impactful and produces positive learning outcomes. Day, evening and Saturday classes are offered.

Duration
2 Days

Upcoming dates for Course DP-201: Designing an Azure Data Solution

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 the architecture, regardless of technology choice, can help you design, build, and continuously improve the architecture for an organization’s 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

Lab: Case Study

  • Design with security in mind
  • Consider performance and scalability
  • Design for availability and recoverability
  • Design for efficiency and operations

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Design with security in mind
  • Consider performance and scalability
  • Design for availability and recoverability

Module 2: Azure Batch Processing Reference Architectures

In this module, students will learn the reference design and architecture patterns for dealing with the batch processing of data. The student will be exposed to dealing with the movement of data from on-premises systems into a cloud data warehouse and how it can be automated. The students will also be exposed to an AI architecture and how the data platform can integrate with an AI solution.

Lessons

  • Lambda architectures from a Batch Mode Perspective
  • Design an Enterprise BI solution in Azure
  • Automate enterprise BI solutions in Azure
  • Architect an Enterprise-grade Conversational Bot in Azure

Module 3: Azure Real-Time Reference Architectures

In this module, the students will learn the reference design and architecture patterns for dealing with streaming data. They will learn how streaming data can be ingested by Event Hubs and Stream Analytics to deliver real-time analysis of data. They will also explore a data science architecture that streams data into Azure Databricks to perform trend analysis. They will finally learn how an Internet of Things (IoT) architecture will require data platform technologies to store data.

Lessons

  • Describe Lambda architectures for a Real-Time Perspective
  • Architect a stream processing pipeline with Azure Stream Analytics
  • Design a stream processing pipeline with Azure Databricks
  • Create an Azure IoT reference architecture
