Most tasks can be completed through the Azure portal but using the command line interface can be very useful for running scripted actions on a regular basis such as a schedule or event trigger. Any repetitive tasks are much faster to execute through a script rather than a human having to use a GUI every time. Humans are also prone to making mistakes so it can often be better restrict usage of the Azure portal. It is very useful to at least be familiar with these management options as after using Azure for many months or years you will likely see the benefits for yourself.
