This module will cover the basics of business intelligence. Basic skills on how to build and manage a data warehouse platform for business intelligence applications are covered, but emphasis is given to people and processes, with an introduction to the technologies involved.

SQL is the foundation of most data tools used today. With SQL, you don’t have to rely on others sending you data and executing queries for you. This allows you to be independent and dig deeper into the data to obtain answers that might improve the way your company does business. This course provides all the knowledge and structure needed to be proficient in SQL.

In this module, you extract data from a wide variety of sources, such as files and relational data sources, apply data integration and transformation solutions, and load data into single or multiple destinations. You solve complex business problems using best practices and troubleshooting techniques.

When you have large volumes of data, you need intuitive, interactive and high-performance access to your data. In this module, you learn how to import tables of data from different sources and relate them to form the foundation of your model. You then learn how to enhance your model with usability features, such as hierarchies. Additional topics include how to manage a tabular database along with table storage, processing, permissions and deployment.

You will learn SQL Server Reporting Services to create and deploy high-level interactive reports for mobile and desktop. Reading data information in visualization mode enables to see analytics presented visually. In other words, an end-user can drill down into charts and graphs for more detail.

The Power BI Business analytic service tool will allow you to create and enhance interactive visualization, with self-service BI capabilities. It has the capacity to connect with and retrieve information from any database.

At the end of the program, students work on a real-time, industry-simulated project during which they build databases and extract information from them, create data models, and prepare visualization reports.
