This quick blog post shows how to install the new Azure Powershell Az module that replaces the AzureRM module. Before starting the installation of the module, it is important to know that Az and AzureRM modules cannot be imported in the same session or used in the same script.
Check Powershell version installed
The new Azure module requires PowerShell version 5.1 or above installed on your computer. To check the version of PowerShell running on your machine, run the following command:

Install the new Azure PowerShell module

To perform the installation of the module, run PowerShell console as administrator, and then type:
Install-Module -Name Az

Check the version of AZ module installed

If you want to check or verify that the module is installed, use the following command:

 Get-InstalledModule -Name Az
