Sam Cogan – Azure Active Directory Is Not Active DIrectory – YouTube

“If your new to Azure, or identity in the cloud then Azure Active Directory can be a confusing concept. Just because it’s got Active Directory in the name, it doesn’t mean it’s the same as the Active Directory you grew up with.

In this session we’ll look at what Azure Active Directory actually is, what it can do, what it can’t do, and what it really shouldn’t do. We will look at some of the core concepts of AAD and where it really shines. We’ll look at some of the common questions and confusion I see around AAD, and what we can do to either solve these, or work around them.

After this session you’ll have a much better understanding of what the purpose of AAD is, how it differs from on premises AD, and what other solutions there are for providing solutions for things that aren’t part of AAD.”
