Azure Data Factory Training FAQs

  • What is Azure Data Factory?

    Azure Data Factory (ADF) v2 is an Azure data integration service which allows creation of data-driven workflows to orchestrate and automate data movement and transformation across cloud, on-prem and hybrid environments.

  • How much ADF experience do I need to sit for this course?

    While this new course is designed to bring students from zero expertise with ADF v2 to an intermediate or even advanced level of knowledge, Microsoft Azure Fundamentals Training (AZ-900T00) or equivalent is expected.
