Azure Architect

Cloud computing
Shaping customer decisions to buy, architect and adopt Azure Infrastructure and Platform solutions
Course Overview:

While customers are progressively moving to public cloud, properly architecting cloud solutions, while managing how decisions in each area of networking, identity, security, business continuity, disaster recovery, data management, budgeting, and governance impact the overall cloud solution. This course is for professionals who advise stakeholders and transform business requirements into scalable, reliable, performant and secure cloud solutions.


This course covers whatever a cloud solutions architect needs to know to plan and design solutions for Microsoft Azure cloud platform. In addition to gathering non-functional requirements and planning for security, identity, scalability, data, monitoring, BC/DR and integration, this course also focuses on how to modernize existing workloads and make them cloud-able in true sense.

Productivity Objectives:  

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Gather customer requirements and map them to the right Azure services
  • Design and plan for security, identity, scalability, data, monitoring, auditing, BC/DR and integration
  • Obtain practical experience in designing cloud physical architecture for Azure and modernize workloads based on Azure best practices
