Microsoft Fabric for Data Analytics with AI

$2,999.00

This is a 2 day class from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EST

Microsoft Fabric is an all-in-one analytics solution for enterprises that covers everything from data movement to data science, Real-Time Analytics, and business intelligence. It offers a comprehensive suite of services, including data lake, data engineering, and data integration, all in one place. With Fabric, you don't need to piece together different services from multiple vendors. Instead, you can enjoy a highly integrated, end-to-end, and easy-to-use product that is designed to simplify your analytics needs. The platform is built on a foundation of Software as a Service (SaaS), which takes simplicity and integration to a whole new level.

In this 2-day hands on workshop, we will cover the following topics in detail:

OneLake and Lakehouses
You will learn how OneLake eliminates today's pervasive and chaotic data silos, which individual developers create when they provision and configure their own isolated storage accounts. Instead, OneLake provides a single, unified storage system for all developers, where discovery and data sharing is trivial and compliance with policy and security settings are enforced centrally and uniformly.

Data Engineering
You will gain Data Engineering experience working with a world class Spark platform with great authoring experiences, enabling data engineers to perform large scale data transformation and democratize data through the Lakehouse. Microsoft Fabric Spark's integration with Data Factory enables notebooks and spark jobs to be scheduled and orchestrated.

Data Factory
You will work with Azure Data Factory and will learn how it combines the simplicity of Power Query with the scale and power of Azure Data Factory. You can use more than 200 native connectors to connect to data sources on-premises and in the cloud, we will experiment with a few.

Data Science and AI
You will experience Data Science in Microsoft Fabric to build, deploy, and operationalize machine learning models seamlessly within your Fabric experience. It integrates with Azure Machine Learning to provide built-in experiment tracking and model registry. Data scientists are empowered to enrich organizational data with predictions and allow business analysts to integrate those predictions into their BI reports. This way it shifts from descriptive to predictive insights.

Data Warehouse
You will gain knowledge about Data Warehousing in Microsoft Fabric which provides industry leading SQL performance and scale. It fully separates compute from storage, enabling independent scaling of both the components. Additionally, it natively stores data in the open Delta Lake format.

Real-Time Analytics
We will learn Observational data, which is collected from various sources such as apps, IoT devices, human interactions, and so many more. It's currently the fastest growing data category. This data is often semi-structured in formats like JSON or Text. It comes in at high volume, with shifting schemas. These characteristics make it hard for traditional data warehousing platforms to work with. Real-Time Analytics in Microsoft Fabric is best in class engine for observational data analytics.

Power BI
Power BI is the world's leading Business Intelligence platform. It ensures that business owners can access all the data in Fabric quickly and intuitively to make better decisions with data. We will demonstrate the use of Power BI in Microsoft Fabric and exercise the powerful connection between the different elements of Microsoft Fabric and Power BI.

At the end of the class, attendees will have a working knowledge of how to work with Microsoft Fabric OneLake, LakeHouses, Data Engineering, Data Science, AI and Machine Learning, Data Factory, Data Warehousing, Real-Time Analytics and Power BI.
