Data Management & SQL

Advanced Data Management is a continuation of the topics discussed in the Introduction Data Management course. This course focuses on dimensional modeling and data warehousing techniques, and teaches participants advanced SQL code. SQL development will focus on learning procedural language SQL (PL/SQL, Transact-SQL, TSQL) to create flexible and useable solutions to solve test business cases. The class will finish with coverage of current database options (cloud services), discussion of NoSQL (big data solutions), and learning how to consume data from a database into analytical tools. This class will build upon an individual's strengths in business, information technology and analytics, and is meant for those wanting to increase their knowledge regarding databases and programming in SQL.

Twenty-five percent of class time will be used for instructor-guided hands-on lab time and applications of data management.
