Greenplum Architecture, Administration, and Implementation Course Details:

In this course, you will learn to design and implement the Greenplum environment and gain the information needed to install, configure, and manage the Greenplum database system. You will be introduced to the Greenplum environment, consisting of the Greenplum Database and supported systems. You will learn the fundamental concepts on data warehousing, business intelligence, and how Greenplum helps to solve business problems in managing and analyzing big data. You will evaluate logical models and business requirements to determine the best physical design for a Greenplum database.
