No! This course assumes you an absolute beginner to Informatica Power center.

Course Syllabus

  • What is Data Warehousing?
  • Differences between OLTP and Data Warehousing
  • Why we need two separate solution for real time and warehousing
  • How to extract data from several sources and load into same target table
  • How to perform transformation logics on data
  • How to load data into final target table
  • Data Marts
  • Need and usage of data marts and types of data marts
  • Dependent DM
  • Independent DM
    Types of Tables:
  • Fact Table
  • Dimension table
  • Star Schema
  • Snowflake Schema
  • Fact Constellation Schema
  • Different types of SCD’s which developer develops and a tester has to test as per different types of data needs of clients
  • We implement SCD-1 and SCD-2 in class to show the implementation part more transparently and explain SCD-3 to define how to work on limited historical data as well which is used sometimes
  • Types:
  • SCD-1
  • SCD-2
  • SCD-3
    Basic Concepts in SQL (Select, Update, Insert and Delete)
  • Tester needs to know how to design frequently used testing queries to validate the data in source and target for two reasons - Data Quality and Correctness. This lets us ensure if the expected data has come into the final and mediator target tables or not.
