Course OverviewMicrosoft 365 Device Management focuses on how to establish Microsoft Intune, enroll devices to Intune, monitor the devices, and control what users can do from the enrolled devices by using conditional access policies. If you are already managing devices by using a traditional device management tool such as Configuration Manager, you will be interested to know how you can seamlessly move to modern management, in which devices are managed by Intune, and how you can benefit from new device management capabilities, such as compliance, conditional access, and Windows Autopilot to deploy new devices from the cloud.The course begins by examining how to move from traditional management, where devices are managed by Configuration Manager, to modern management, where you can benefit from new capabilities such as device compliance and conditional access. This journey can begin by enabling co-management, which you can do in your current environment by adding Intune as an additional device management option. You can then move management of some Windows 10 devices to Intune, while all other devices remain managed by Configuration Manager. After you get confidence and experience with the benefits of modern management, you will probably want to move the management of your other devices to Intune as well.The course then examines how you can monitor Windows 10 devices by using Windows Analytics. You will better understand the differences between quality updates and feature updates, as well as the Windows as a Service (WaaS) model, and when you must upgrade Windows 10 to a newer version to be supported by Microsoft.

You are the leader of a group of climate scientists who are concerned about the dwindling polar-bear population in the Arctic. As such, your team has placed hundreds of motion-activated cameras at strategic locations throughout the region. Rather than manually examine each photograph to determine whether it contains a polar bear, you have been challenged to devise an automated system that processes data from these cameras in real time and displays an alert on a map when a polar bear is photographed. You need a solution that incorporates real-time stream processing to analyze raw data for potential sightings, and one that incorporates artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to determine with a high degree of accuracy whether a photo contains a polar bear. And you need it fast, because climate change won’t wait.In this lab, you will build such a system using Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Cognitive Services. Specifically, you will use an Azure IoT hub to ingest streaming data from simulated cameras, Azure Storage to store photographs, Azure Stream Analytics to process real-time data streams, Azure Functions to process output from Stream Analytics, Microsoft’s Custom Vision Service to analyze photographs for polar pears, Microsoft Power BI to build a dashboard for visualizing results, and Azure SQL Database as a data source for Power BI.

Today, data is being collected in ever-increasing amounts, at ever-increasing velocities, and in an ever-expanding variety of formats. This explosion of data is colloquially known as the Big Data phenomenon.In order to gain actionable insights into big-data sources, new tools need to be leveraged that allow the data to be cleaned, analyzed, and visualized quickly and efficiently. Azure HDInsight provides a solution to this problem by making it exceedingly simple to create high-performance computing clusters provisioned with Apache Spark and members of the Spark ecosystem. Rather than spend time deploying hardware and installing, configuring, and maintaining software, you can focus on your research and apply your expertise to the data rather than the resources required to analyze that data.Apache Spark is an open-source parallel-processing platform that excels at running large-scale data analytics jobs. Spark’s combined use of in-memory and disk data storage delivers performance improvements that allow it to process some tasks up to 100 times faster than Hadoop. With Microsoft Azure, deploying Apache Spark clusters becomes significantly simpler and gets you working on your data analysis that much sooner.In this lab, you will experience HD Insight with Spark first-hand. After provisioning a Spark cluster, you will use the Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer to upload several Jupyter notebooks to the cluster. You will then use these notebooks to explore, visualize, and build a machine-learning model from food-inspection data — more than 100,000 rows of it — collected by the city of Chicago. The goal is to learn how to create and utilize your own Spark clusters, experience the ease with which they are provisioned in Azure, and, if you're new to Spark, get a working introduction to Spark data analytics.

In this lab, you will use AzureML to set up a model to forecast prices. We will also use R and RStudio in order to learn more R programming. Predicting the increase in sales from a number of factors is an example of regression, or you could simply call it scoring, which is a more familiar term. If you want to know how small variations in input variables affect outcome, then you likely want to use a regression method. If you’re trying to predict scores, regression is likely a good choice for this business requirement. There are different types of regression, and the selection of regression method depends on the business problem that you are trying to solve. For example, if you want to work out the probability that an object is in a given class, then you could use logistic regression, which is aimed at estimating class probabilities. In practical terms, what does that actually mean? Well, an example might be estimating the probability of fraud in a credit card purchase, where we might want to work out the probability that it is a fraudulent purchase. We are also going to use a new method to work with missing data. In the Missing Data task, the PCA option approximates the covariance for the full dataset to reconstruct the missing data. In practice, this means that AzureML will use the PCA method to ‘guess’ what the missing data will be. For each column, AzureML will add an additional column which will identify whether the data was originally missing, or whether it was present. Later on, this makes it easier to visualize the data since we can include or exclude data which was originally missing, in line with the user requirements or to promote further analysis.
