Data Warehousing on AWS introduces you to concepts, strategies, and best practices for designing cloud-based data warehousing solutions. These solutions utilise Amazon Redshift, the petabyte-scale data warehouse in AWS.

Understand how to collect, store, and prepare data for the data warehouse by using other AWS services. Namely, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon EMR, Amazon Kinesis Firehose, and Amazon S3.

Finally, you’ll learn how to use business intelligence tools to perform analysis on your data.

This course is delivered by a certified AWS trainer. Instructor led training has been shown to deliver the best learning outcomes.
