Building Data Analytics Solutions Using Amazon Redshift (BDASAR)

 

Course Overview

This course uses an Amazon Redshift data warehouse as part of the data analytics solution. The course focuses on the data collection, ingestion, cataloging, storage, and processing components of the analytics pipeline. You will design and build data analytics solutions for data warehousing use cases. You will learn how a data warehouse can be integrated into a data lake or a modern data architecture. You will also learn to apply best practices to support security, performance, and cost optimization of Amazon Redshift.
