Course Overview

In this course, the students will design various data platform technologies into solutions that are in line with business and technical requirements. This can include on-premises, cloud, and hybrid data scenarios which incorporate relational, No-SQL or Data Warehouse data. They will also learn how to design process architectures using a range of technologies for both streaming and batch data.

The students will also explore how to design data security including data access, data policies and standards. They will also design Azure data solutions which includes the optimization, availability and disaster recovery of big data, batch processing and streaming data solutions.

This Enterprise Skills Initiative Program class is for Microsoft approved clients ONLY. If you are unsure of eligibility, please contact Martha Garron via phone at 603-384-1251 or via email at [email protected].
