About the Course

The capstone course, Design and Build a Data Warehouse for Business Intelligence Implementation, features a real-world case study that integrates your learning across all courses in the specialization. In response to business requirements presented in a case study, you’ll design and build a small data warehouse, create data integration workflows to refresh the warehouse, write SQL statements to support analytical and summary query requirements, and use the MicroStrategy business intelligence platform to create dashboards and visualizations. In the first part of the capstone course, you’ll be introduced to a medium-sized firm, learning about their data warehouse and business intelligence requirements and existing data sources. You’ll first architect a warehouse schema and dimensional model for a small data warehouse. You’ll then create data integration workflows using Pentaho Data Integration to refresh your data warehouse. Next, you’ll write SQL statements for analytical query requirements and create materialized views to support summary data management. Finally, you will use MicroStrategy OLAP capabilities to gain insights into your data warehouse. In the completed project, you’ll have built a small data warehouse containing a schema design, data integration workflows, analytical queries, materialized views, dashboards and visualizations that you’ll be proud to show to your current and prospective employers....

far too few students who rate your work - you always need to wait very long for reviews

Course is good but mentor grading needs to be a bit sorted as in they required almost 2 additional weeks to grade one assignment in total that is 1 month to grade an assignment so that needs to be taken care of

I loved the 1st 4 weeks of this capstone course which focused on data warehouse design, data integration and writing queries. All of the assignments were challenging but fair. Unfortunately, I do not feel the same way about the data visualization module. The sample dashboards provided are not well done enough to be used in a professional setting.

this is an excellent and rigorous course and a valuable preparation for working with data warehouses. frustratingly, the assignments contained errors, inconsistencies, and vagaries that left me wondering if the professors did this on purpose, to simulate real world situations. anyway, the bottom line is that this course offers a great opportunity to learn and practice. they say you get out of it only what you put into it. be prepared to spend 8 to 16 hours on the assignments. but it definitely was worth it. THANK YOU, PROFESSORS!
