Data Warehousing on AWS (DWAWS)


Course Overview

In this course, you will learn concepts, strategies, and best practices for designing a cloud-based data warehousing solution using Amazon Redshift, the petabyte-scale data warehouse in AWS. We will demonstrate how to collect, store, and prepare data for the data warehouse by using other AWS services, such as Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon EMR, Amazon Kinesis Firehose, and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). We will also explore how to use business intelligence (BI) tools to perform analysis on your data.

Who should attend

This course is intended for:

  • Database architects
  • Database administrators
  • Database developers
  • Data analysts
  • Data scientists
