Course #:552241

Microsoft Azure Big Data Analytics Solutions Training

552241 is a two-day instructor-led course is intended for data professionals who want to expand their knowledge about creating big data analytic solutions on Microsoft Azure.  Students will learn how to design solutions for batch and real-time data processing.  Different methods of using Azure will be discussed and practiced in lab exercises, such Azure CLI, Azure PowerShell and Azure Portal.  552241 labs and exercises cover the first two objectives of exam 70-475 (Designing Big Data batch, interactive & real-time solutions).  The other two objectives (Designing Machine Learning and cloud analytics solutions) are covered in 552242.

Objectives

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Describe common architectures for processing big data using Azure tools and services.
  • Describe how to use Azure Stream Analytics to design and implement stream processing over large-scale data.
  • Describe how to include custom functions and incorporate machine learning activities into an Azure Stream Analytics job.
  • Describe how to use Azure Data Lake Store as a large-scale repository of data files.
  • Describe how to use Azure Data Lake Analytics to examine and process data held in Azure Data Lake Store.
  • Describe how to create and deploy custom functions and operations, integrate with Python and R, and protect and optimize jobs.
  • Describe how to use Azure SQL Data Warehouse to create a repository that can support large-scale analytical processing over data at rest.
  • Describe how to use Azure SQL Data Warehouse to perform analytical processing, how to maintain performance, and how to protect the data.
  • Describe how to use Azure Data Factory to import, transform, and transfer data between repositories and services.

Audience

The primary audience for this course is data engineers (IT professionals, developers, and information workers) who plan to implement big data engineering workflows on Azure.
