This course describes how to design and implement a data warehouse solution.
students will learn how to create a data warehouse with Microsoft SQL Server implement ETL with SQL Server Integration Services, and validate and cleanse data with SQL Server Data Quality Services and SQL Server Master Data Services.
The Primary responsibilities of a data warehouse developer include:
Implementing a data warehouse.
Developing SSIS packages for data extraction, transformation, and loading.
Enforcing data integrity by using Master Data Services.
Cleansing data by using Data Quality Services.
Experience of working with relational databases, including:
Designing a normalized database.
Creating tables and relationships.
Querying with Transact-SQL.
Some exposure to basic programming constructs (such as looping and branching).
An awareness of key business priorities such as revenue, profitability, and financial accounting is desirable.

The volume of data available is huge and increasing daily. Structured Query Language -SQL (pronounced as sequel) is the standard language used to communicate and interact with data stored in relational management database systems like Microsoft SQL Server Oracle, PostgreSQL,MySQL etc.
Different database management systems have their own proprietary version of the SQL language but they all conform to using some commands in SQL the same way. Microsoft SQL Server's version of SQL is known as Transact-SQL (T-SQL).
You will learn the basics of the SQL language and Transact-SQL since both use certain commands in the same way.
What You will learn includes:
Installing SQL Server
Basic Database Concepts
Creating stored procedures
Reading data from a database
Updating database records
Backing up database
