Modeling Data Unit Introduction

Unit Introduction

In this unit, we will explore the Data Builder application, which enables you to create, manage, and maintain your data models.

Creating local tables is another critical aspect of data management, and we will cover the steps required to create local tables in Datasphere. Additionally, we will delve into the process of creating a relationship model to define relationships between different data models, and also look at how to create views to transform and prepare data for analytics.

By the end of this course, you will have gained a solid understanding of the key concepts of the Data Builder, and be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to start managing your data effectively.
