Course Overview

Top
This course teaches IT Professional how to use Azure Active Directory (AD) to provide employees and customers with a multi-tenant cloud-based directory and identity management system. Students will learn the differences between Azure AD and Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), as well the differences in functionality offered by the different editions of Azure AD. Students also learn how to configure self-service password reset, or to use the option of password writeback to reset user passwords regardless of their location. Students are then introduced to Azure AD Identity Protection and learn how they can use it to protect their organizations from compromised accounts, identity attacks, and configuration issues. Students also learn how to integrate Azure AD with the many Software as a Service (SaaS) applications that are used, in order to secure user access to those applications.

Next, the concepts of Azure domains and tenants, and users and groups are explained and students learn how to work with the various Azure AD objects. Students are introduced to Azure role-based access control to be able to provide a more granular access based on the principle of least privilege. An administrator, or user, can do exactly the task they need to accomplish; no more, no less. Students also learn how to work with Azure joined devices and Hybrid AD joined devices, enabling their users to be productive wherever and whenever – but ensuring that corporate assets are protected and that devices meet security and compliance standards.

Students learn how to use Azure AD Connect to integrate their on-premises directories with Azure AD, providing a common identity for their users of Office 365, Azure, and SaaS applications integrated with Azure AD. Lastly, students also learn how to use Azure AD Application Proxy to be able to provide their users with remote access to web application that are published on-premises, such as SharePoint sites, Outlook Web Access, or any other line of business (LOB) applications the organization has.

They take end-user requests for new cloud applications and make recommendations on services to use for optimal performance and scale, as well as provision, size, monitor and adjust as appropriate. This role requires communicating and coordinating with vendors.  Azure Administrators use the Azure Portal and as they become more proficient they use PowerShell and the Command Line Interface.
