To get the most from this course, you should have at least a moderate understanding of Microsoft Azure, and of identity management concepts. We'll kick off the course by discussing Azure Active Directory and what it offers. We will then talk a bit about hybrid identities and what purpose they serve. Next, we'll cover Azure AD Domain Services and how to deploy this feature. 

After covering Azure AD Domain Services, we'll get into single sign-on, and how to configure it for a web application. Azure MFA or multi-factor authentication is another cool feature that we will discuss. We'll cover what it is, what it offers, and how to enable it. After covering MFA, we will get into Azure AD B2B and Azure AD B2C. These are Azure AD Business to Business and Azure AD Business to Consumer. You will learn what they are, what they offer, and how to deploy them. We'll then move into Privileged Identity Management, otherwise known as PIM. Rounding out the course are topics on self-service password reset, self-service group management, and managed identities for Azure resources. There are demonstrations sprinkled throughout the course. These demos will show you how to deploy and use the technologies covered. By the end of this course, you should have a good understanding of all key technologies and features as they relate to designing for Azure identity management. You should also be able to deploy each feature with an understanding of what it offers and how it fits into any identity management solution.
