M10993 Integrating OnPremises Identity Infrastructure with Microsoft Azure

Special Notices

Please note: Microsoft officially offer this course as a two day event. However, we have taken the step of delivering this over three days due to the breadth of material and the lab requirements for the course.

This course teaches IT professionals how to integrate their on-premises AD DS environment with Azure AD and how to use Azure AD as a directory service. It also teaches candidates how to use Azure RMS to protect sensitive documents. Additionally, it focusses on how to enhance authentication with multi-factor authentication and how to monitor directory synchronization health.

Audience profile

The primary audience for this course is existing IT professionals who have some knowledge and experience with Azure, and advanced experience with the Windows Server operating system. In addition, IT professionals who take this course typically want to develop knowledge of identity services integration between on-premises services and cloud services. This would typically include:

AD DS administrators who are looking to train in cloud identity and access technologies.
System or infrastructure administrators with general AD DS experience and knowledge, who are looking for more advanced identity training for Azure services.
