SQL for BI and Data Science

After a short introduction on data warehousing (DW), business intelligence (BI) and Data Science topics, we dive into a thorough discussion on the possibilities offered by SQL. More specifically, statistical, analytical and OLAP functions will be treated, as well as the use of SQL for ETL and for MapReduce. The most important ones are individually discussed and demonstrated; realistic labs should allow the participant to get an idea of the applicability of these SQL functions and options.

The SQL syntax covered in this course is platform independent. When relevant, platform specific exceptions will be pointed-out with respect to Oracle, Db2, SQL Server and Hive.

At the end of this training, participants will be able to:
