Data analytics is the systematic, computational analysis of data or statistics used to discover and communicate meaningful patterns. In business, analytics can be used to extract insights for a business strategy or identify new business opportunities. Snowflake is a managed data platform for big data storage, processing, and analytics that allows for common SQL operations and additional operations. In this course, explore various types of Snowflake join operations and data sampling. Next, learn how to use common table expressions (CTEs) and construct queries. Finally, work with functions related to partitioning, windowing, and ranks. Upon completion, you'll be able to use joins, perform row-based and block-based sampling, construct CTEs, and perform windowing and partitioning operations in Snowflake.
