Who is the course for?
The audience for this course is data professionals and data architects who want to learn about migrating data platform technologies that exist on Microsoft Azure and how existing SQL based workloads can be migrated and modernized.
The secondary audience for this course is individuals who manage data platforms or develop applications that deliver content from the existing data platform technologies.
We can also deliver and customise this training course for larger groups – saving your organisation time, money and resources. For more information, please contact us on 1800 853 276.
Module 1: Introducing Data Platform ModernizationIn this module, the students will learn the purpose of Data Platform Modernization and they will outline the benefits that data platform modernization can bring to an organization. The students will then learn the various stages of a data platform migration projects to understand what is involve in each stage to maximise the chances of a successful Data Platform Modernization Projects. Finally, students will explore the various data migration paths to understand how each approach is different and why you would choose one migration approach over another.

Module 2: Choose the right tools for Data MigrationIn this module, the student will be introduced to the Data Migration Guide as a starting point for the source of information that your organization should use for step by step guidance for modernizing your existing data platform. They will then learn the value of the Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit to help discover the data assets that currently exist in their environments. The students will then learn the tools that can be used to help them to asses for compatibility or workload issues using both the Data Migration and Data Experimentation Assistant. The students will then see how the Azure Database Migration Service can be used to aid online migration of databases to reduce the amount of downtime. Finally, an overview of the SQL Migration assistant is provided to show student how to migrate no-SQL Server workloads.

Module 3: Migrating SQL Workloads to Azure Virtual MachinesIn this module, the student will learn how to migrate on-premises SQL workloads to Azure Virtual Machines that are running SQL Server. Students will first explore the migration consideration when migrating from on-premises SQL Server to Azure Virtual Machines and the benefits they can gain by performing the migration. They will then learn the different migration options that can be performed when migrating to Azure Virtual Machines. This will include a look at the benefits and limitations of each approach. The students will finally look at SQL Server workloads that include High Availability and Disaster Recovery to ensure service continuity.

Module 4: Migrate SQL Workloads to Azure SQL DatabasesIn this module, the students will explore what is Azure SQL Database and why it is a suitable target for SQL based workloads. It teaches students how to choose the appropriate SQL Server instance option and why it can fulfil business requirements for data platform modernization.
The modules will also show students how they can perform both offline and online migrations to Azure SQL Database. By doing so, they can assess which method maybe appropriate to their scenarios at work. It will also show the tools that can be used to enable the data migration process. Finally, they will explore the methods that can be used to load data into Azure SQL Database from an on-premises instance.

Module 5: Migrate SQL Workloads to Azure SQL Database Managed InstanceThis module will explore what is an Azure SQL Database Managed Instance and why it is a suitable target for SQL based workloads. They also learn how Azure SQL Database Managed Instance can fulfil the business requirements for data platform modernization. The students will then explore the tools that can be used to enable the data migration process to Azure SQL Database Managed Instance. They will then explore the methods and tools that can be used to load data into Azure SQL Database Managed Instance from an on-premises instance. Finally, they will learn some of the changes that may need to be made to existing SQL based applications so that they can use Azure SQL Database Managed Instance.
