MOC55232 – Writing Analytical Queries for BI
Panoramica del corso
This three-day instructor led course is about writing TSQL queries for the purpose of database reporting, analysis, and business intelligence. Specifically, this course presents TSQL within the context of data analysis – in other words, making meaning from the data rather than transaction-oriented data-tier application development.
The course starts with a brief discussion of levels of measurement and quantitative research methodogy, and integrates these concepts into each TSQL topic presented. The goal is to provide a consistent, direct, and purposeful learning path for RDBMS data retrieval for use in analytical tools such as SQL Server Reporting Services, PowerBI, R, and Excel.
il corso è rivolto a:
This course is intended for information workers and data science professionals who seek to use database reporting and analysis tools such as Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services, Excel, Power BI, R, SAS and other business intelligence tools, and wish to use TSQL queries to efficiently retrieve data sets from Microsoft SQL Server relational databases for use with these tools.
al termine del corso i partecipanti saranno in grado di:
