What is the main difference between Exam AZ303: Microsoft Azure Architect Technologies and Exam AZ304: Microsoft Azure Architect Design ?

The new Microsoft Certified Architect certifications have in-depth coverage of the fundamentals of Azure compared to the previous certification and are more role-oriented and industry-specific. Microsoft Azure Architect Technologies measures your ability to deploy and configure infrastructure, implement workloads and security, create and deploy apps, implement authentication and secure data, and develop for the cloud and Azure storage. Microsoft Azure Architect Design measures your ability to determine workload requirements, design for identity and security, design data platform solution, design a business continuity strategy, design for deployment, migration, and integration, and design an infrastructure strategy. AZ-300 Exam is more on implementation and management and not into architecting and designing whereas AZ-301 Exam will focus on designing and architecting Azure solutions.
