Learn about the data engineering as it pertains to working with batch and real-time analytical solutions using Azure data platform technologies. You will begin by understanding the core compute and storage technologies that are used to build an analytical solution.
Interactively explore data stored in files in a data lake. You will learn the various ingestion techniques that can be used to load data using the Apache Spark capability found in Azure Synapse Analytics or Azure Databricks, or how to ingest using Azure Data Factory or Azure Synapse pipelines.
Students will learn the various ways to transform the data, and understand the importance of implementing security to ensure that the data is protected at rest or in transit. Create a real-time analytical system and solutions.
You will have an opportunity to complete a practical project, and apply various skills and techniques that you have learned.
