You'll also get an overview of the services relevant to data professionals like compute resources (virtual machines, containers), networking components (virtual networks, load balancers), storage options (blobs, queues, tables, files), and databases (Azure SQL Database, Cosmos DB).

Finally, you'll learn how to secure your Azure environment using identity and access management, monitor resources effectively, implement cost management strategies, and comply with regulatory requirements.
