ADS Essentials

Agile Data Warehouse Service (ADS) Essentials


This course introduces the GoodData Agile Data Warehouse Service, which can be used to store staging data required by data loading (ETL) processes as well as building a complete data warehouse solution that is capable of feeding data to the GoodData Business Intelligence Platform. Practical hands-on exercises are included to walk participants through creating ADS instances, connecting to ADS from SQL Clients and CloudConnect, creating ADS data structures, loading data into ADS, and extracting data from ADS for loading into GoodData projects using both CloudConnect and the GoodData Automated Data Distribution (ADD) feature. By the end of the course, participants will be able to implement ADS for their GoodData projects.
