Course Description

Introduction to the Project

Embark on an exciting journey with AppSculpt, a leading developer of recommendation applications, as they aim to transition their book recommendation service to the Microsoft Azure platform. As a consultant in this case study, you will use your understanding of Azure Fundamentals to guide this transformation. You will explore the capabilities of Azure to find the optimal solutions that align with the company's needs and aspirations for scalability and reliability.

Implementation Strategies

Throughout this case study, you will engage in detailed planning and execution of the app's migration. This includes selecting the appropriate Azure services such as Azure App Services, Azure SQL Databases, and Azure Cognitive Services to enhance the app's functionality. You will also employ the Azure Pricing Calculator to forecast and manage costs effectively, ensuring the project stays within budget. Your role will involve configuring these services to work seamlessly together to provide a robust book recommendation system.

Security and Monitoring

Maintaining the security and integrity of the application is paramount. In this segment, you will learn to implement Azure’s security features, including setting up Azure Active Directory for authentication and using Azure Monitor to keep track of the app’s performance and activity. These tools will help you ensure that the application not only runs efficiently but also remains secure against potential threats, providing peace of mind to both AppSculpt and its users.
