Why study this course

This one-day course prepares you for the task of migrating SQL Server workloads to Azure SQL Database.

You'll learn how to assess SQL Server components and compatibility for migration using the Azure SQL Migration Extension and Database Migration Assistant. This training guides you through the process of provisioning and configuring Azure SQL Database resources. You gain hands-on experience in choosing the best migration option to meet business requirements for downtime, handling migration state, and monitoring database migration.
