Microsoft Cloud Workshop: Data Platform Upgrade and Migration

- Only 1 Day

On this accelerated 1-day Microsoft Cloud Workshop: Data Platform Upgrade and Migration course, you'll get the skills you need to build a Proof-of-Concept (POC) and conduct a site analysis that compares cost, performance and effort required to migrate from Oracle to SQL server.

Your expert Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT), will guide you through how to take advantage of new SQL Server features to improve performance and resiliency, and how to migrate from an old version of SQL Server to the newest version, whilst considering the impact of migrating from on-premises to the cloud.

You'll also get the skills you need to evaluate the dependent applications and reports that may need to be updated and come up with a migration plan.

"Course was very good, I liked the analogies given to explain complex networking areas it really helped. The instructor was very good at bringing information to a level everyone could understand and then further on that. "
Ewan jamieson, Mr. (17/2/2020 to 22/2/2020)

"Knowledgeable, well spoken and relatable instructor. The instructor explained difficult concepts clearly and provided good examples to help us understand the material. He also discussed real-world examples to help solidify how the concepts are applied in the field. There were a few technical issues with the remote learning and remote labs, but overall a great experience, especially so when considering the current situation with COVID-19."
JE, Mitchells & Butlers. (4/5/2020 to 7/5/2020)

"I would highly recommend taking up a course with Firebrand because the way the course is delivered is very helpful and useful for someone who either has no knowledge or some knowledge. The instructors do everything they can to ensure everyone is learning and is always on hand to help anyone who is struggling with anything. Everyone on the course is also very helpful and in the same position as they want to learn to. So there is not just the instructor but the class as a whole to assist. The facility is very nice and I will definitely be coming back for any future courses I attend. "
