In this course, you will learn how to implement a data warehouse platform to support a business intelligence (BI) solution. You will discover how to create a data warehouse, implement extract, transform, and load (ETL) with SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS), and validate and cleanse data with SQL Server Data Quality Services (DQS) and SQL Server Master Data Services.

This course incorporates material from the Official Microsoft Learning Product 20463: Implementing a Data Warehouse with Microsoft SQL Server. It covers the skills and knowledge measured by Exam 70-463 and along with on-the-job experience, helps you prepare for the exam.
