SQL Server for Data Analytics (Remote)

From: KSh 20,000.00

Categories: ,


This course is for people who wish to use data to answer questions. SQL is the “meat and potatoes” of data analysis for many people—used to access, clean, and analyze data contained in databases. It’s simple to understand, but it’s used by the world’s top corporations to tackle extremely difficult problems.


This tutorial is designed for prospective analysts who have some familiarity with Excel but none with coding. 


Although some of the lessons may be beneficial for software developers who use SQL in their applications, this course does not address how to set up SQL databases or how to utilize them in software applications, making it a limited resource for aspiring software developers.
