Azure StarterKit: 4-Day Use Case Workshop

Swisscom (Schweiz) AG

The Azure StarterKit by Swisscom is your tailor-made springboard for your journey to the cloud.

What is the Azure StarterKit? The Azure StarterKit by Swisscom is a 4-day workshop tailored to your needs that aims not only to make it easier for you to start using Azure Services from Microsoft from a technological point of view, but also to show you some of the possibilities opened up by digitalisation. Choose from existing use cases with a technological focus (e.g. IoT, cognitive services, translation services, bot framework, etc.) and, with the help of Swisscom experts, discover how this is implemented. You will begin with a detailed introduction to Azure, covering topics such as licensing, price models, security, hybrid approaches and the IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service) and SaaS (Software as a Service) options.
