As technology advances, new ways to store, process, and analyze data emerge. For example, large database systems, which require a lot of storage space, have been moved to the cloud and made remotely accessible to many users. These kinds of data infrastructures require business leaders to understand modern data systems and their working principles fully. Use this course to get to grips with the key differences between legacy data systems and modern infrastructures and explore crucial concepts related to modern data infrastructures. By the end of the course, you'll be able to argue why new age data infrastructures are necessary and traditional data systems are limited.

    In this video, you'll learn how ETL based data warehousing solutions often get plagued by cost overruns, due to high effort volumes and their complexity. Moreover, ETL based projects are known for their appallingly high failure rates. This is because great care is needed to conceptualize the database and totally define requirements to avoid having to rework complicated and frail connections. FREE ACCESS

    5.  Compare ETL and ELT Systems
    2m 30s
    In this video, you'll learn the differences between ETL and ELT. ETL and ELT are two different methods for loading data into a data warehouse. As discussed in our previous course on data warehousing and ETL, ETL stands for extract, transform, and load. The primary purpose of an ETL process is to extract data from various sources, transform it, and load it into the database. FREE ACCESS
