This course is for Azure administrators responsible for migrating and managing SAP solutions in Azure. Azure administrators manage cloud services that include storage, network and compute cloud capabilities, with a deep understanding of each service across the entire IT lifecycle. They receive end-user requests for new cloud applications and offer on services to use for optimal performance and scalability, as well as provisioning, sizing, monitoring, and modifying as needed. This role requires communication and coordination with vendors. Azure administrators use the Azure portal and, as they become more experienced, use PowerShell and the command-line interface.
