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. For data integration workflows and analytical queries, you can use either Oracle or PostgreSQL. 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....

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.

Very good except for the fact you had to wait for certain course aspects until the mark is officially given

The capstone project is interesting but requires far too much time compared to the other courses and to what is announced.

I completed the previous 4 courses right now (early April) and I am still in the subscription. But the assignment in course 5 is locked and I cannot get access to the assignments until June. Does someone really have to wait for two months and pay another fee to complete this course? Rules are not well designed for me.

Unclear, ambiguous direction and material that is unhelpful for building the final project
