  • The course also shows you how to use tools to audit, profile data, and manage metadata to assist in the implementation of an ETL project.
  • Activities in this course focus on the tools and features discussed in each lesson and enable you to create dimensions and a fact table. You will have a chance to apply different concepts learned from a few combined lessons in two one-hour comprehensive workshops.
  • At the end of the course, you will be able to put into practice data flow design concepts in a final two-three hour workshop.
  • As a business benefit, by being able to create efficient ETL projects, you can use the transformed data to help improve operational and supply chain efficiencies, enhance customer relationships, create new revenue opportunities, and optimize return on investment from enterprise applications.

Audience

  • This course is designed for individuals responsible for implementing ETL projects (batch-mode), administering and managing projects that involve Data Integrator.
