Data Warehouse Information & Overview   

Databases storing details of the organization’s day to day operations contain important data to track and make decisions.

This is the recommended eighth class of the Technical Solutions Delivery Certificate that provides an overview of technological understanding to help in the communication of projects and working relationships.
