Data integration skills are extremely useful in the cloud-powered workplace. This course will introduce you to the most common data integration scenarios and techniques. If you are currently working in a technology job, this course will help you be more effective in your current role and give you the skills necessary to participate in data integration projects.
If you are not currently working in an IT role, this course will give you knowledge that will set you apart from other workers in your field. Whether you work in finance, marketing, logistics, customer service, or human resources, this course will give you the knowledge to identify scenarios were data integration can optimize business results.
If you are interested in making a move into an IT role, data integration skills are a great path for this transition. In this course, I will give you knowledge that can start your journey to various IT roles like a Data Integration Specialist, Data Engineer or a Data Analyst.
In this course, I will focus on three types of data integration: Business-to-Business Integration, Application Integration, and Database Integration. You will learn how businesses exchange data using standard EDI, XML, and APIs. I’ll explain common communication methods like FTP and AS2. You’ll also learn about application integration approaches including SOAP, REST APIs, and Webhooks. And I’ll teach you about database integration technologies involving data warehouses, data lakes, streaming data, extract-transform-load processing, and data propagation techniques like replication.
By the end of the course, you’ll have a solid understanding of how data integration can be used to improve business results. You will be knowledgeable about how these techniques are applied, and will be able to intelligently speak with software vendors, customers, suppliers or your internal IT department about data integration projects.
