The Migration Paths to Azure AD


NOTE: This course has been moved to GumRoad.


In this course we will discuss the migration paths from legacy Active Directory environments, and some key considerations. For example, how does the move to Azure AD fit in with the bigger picture of migrating all our other apps and services to the cloud?

We will cover:

  • Why migrate?
  • Users & groups
  • Connecting third-party applications and SSO
  • Devices and device states
  • Azure AD Join vs. Hybrid Azure AD Join
  • Security policies
  • Recommended migration paths

Azure AD supports the modern workplace across every major device platform and every major cloud provider. Bring your own device, or bring your own app: Azure AD doesn't care! The world's largest directory service will help you to wrangle the madness of the modern workplace.

Scholarship Program


When you select the Benefactor rate, this includes support for the SquareOne Scholarship Program, which is intended to help those who cannot otherwise afford access to educational opportunities. I have a couple of MSP's in developing countries that will benefit from this directly (it buys their ticket to the courses, basically), plus a donation at the end of 2021 to another beneficiary (TBD).

ITProMentor.com will feature more about this in the months to come. For now, know that the money will go to a good cause, and help to make possible better economic outcomes for those in need.
