AMA18 - Building Data Analytics Solutions Using Amazon Redshift

Course description

In this course, you will build a data analytics solution using Amazon Redshift, a cloud data warehouse
service. The course focuses on the data collection, ingestion, cataloging, storage, and processing
components of the analytics pipeline. You will learn to integrate Amazon Redshift with a data lake to
support both analytics and machine learning workloads. You will also learn to apply security, performance,
and cost management best practices to the operation of Amazon Redshift.


This course includes presentations, interactive demos, practice labs, discussions, and class exercises.
