Design and Implement Azure SQL Data Warehouse Solutions (15-20%)
Design tables in Azure SQL Data Warehouse
Choose the optimal type of distribution column to optimize workflows, select a table geometry, limit data skew and process skew through the appropriate selection of distributed columns, design columnstore indexes, identify when to scale compute nodes, calculate the number of distributions for a given workload
Query data in Azure SQL Data Warehouse
Implement query labels, aggregate functions, create and manage statistics in distributed tables, monitor user queries to identify performance issues, change a user resource class
Integrate Azure SQL Data Warehouse with other services
Ingest data into Azure SQL Data Warehouse by using AZCopy, Polybase, Bulk Copy Program (BCP), Azure Data Factory, SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS), Create-Table-As-Select (CTAS), and Create-External-Table-As-Select (CETAS); export data from Azure SQL Data Warehouse; provide connection information to access Azure SQL Data Warehouse from Azure Machine Learning; leverage Polybase to access a different distributed store; migrate data to Azure SQL Data Warehouse; select the appropriate ingestion method based on business needs

Design and Implement Cloud-Based Integration by using Azure Data Factory (15-20%)
Implement datasets and linked services
Implement availability for the slice, create dataset policies, configure the appropriate linked service based on the activity and the dataset
Move, transform, and analyze data by using Azure Data Factory activities
Copy data between on-premises and the cloud, create different activity types, extend the data factory by using custom processing steps, move data to and from Azure SQL Data Warehouse
Orchestrate data processing by using Azure Data Factory pipelines
Identify data dependencies and chain multiple activities, model schedules based on data dependencies, provision and run data pipelines, design a data flow
