Data Warehousing on AWS

Due to Covid-19 safety restrictions PhoenixTS will temporarily be unable to provide food to our students who attend class at our Training Center; however, our Break Areas are currently open where students will find a constant supply of Coffee, Tea and Water. Students may bring their own lunch and snacks to eat in our breakrooms or at their seat in the classroom or eat out at one of the many nearby restaurants.

Course Overview

In this 3 day, instructor led intermediate Data Warehousing on AWS course, participants will be introduced to concepts, strategies, and best practices for designing a cloud- based data warehousing solution using Amazon Redshift, the petabyte-scale data warehouse in AWS. This course demonstrates how to collect, store, and prepare data for the data warehouse by using AWS services such as Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon EMR, Amazon Kinesis, and Amazon S3. Additionally, this course demonstrates how to use Amazon QuickSight to perform analysis on data.

At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the core concepts of data warehousing, and the intersection between data warehousing and big data solutions
  • Launch an Amazon Redshift cluster and use the components, features, and functionality to implement a data warehouse in the cloud
  • Use other AWS data and analytic services, such as Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon EMR, Amazon Kinesis, and Amazon S3, to contribute to the data warehousing solution
  • Architect the data warehouse
  • Identify performance issues, optimize queries, and tune the database for better performance
  • Use Amazon Redshift Spectrum to analyze data directly from an Amazon S3 bucket
  • Use Amazon QuickSight to perform data analysis and visualization tasks against the data warehouse.
