This course describes how to implement a data warehouse platform to support a business intelligence (BI) solution.
Data warehousing is a solution organizations use to centralize business data for reporting and analysis. This five-day, instructor-led course focuses on teaching individuals how to create a data warehouse with SQL Server 2014, and implement ETL with SQL Server Integration Services. This course helps people prepare for exam 70-463.
Note: This course is designed for students who are interested in learning SQL Server 2012 or SQL Server 2014. It covers the new features in SQL Server 2014, but also the important capabilities across the SQL Server data platform.
After completing this course, students should be able to:
This course is intended for database professionals, who need to fulfil a BI developer role. They should perform hands-on work creating BI solutions including data warehouse implementation, Extract-Transform-Load (ETL), and data cleansing. Primary responsibilities include:
This course requires that students meet the following prerequisites:
- At least two years’ experience working with relational databases, including:
o Designing a normalized database
o Creating tables and relationships
o Querying with Transact-SQL
o Some exposure to basic programming constructs (such as looping and branching)
An awareness of key business priorities such as revenue, profitability, and financial accounting is desirable.
