This course is designed to help students learn and practice all the tasks required to build, populate and report from a Kalido data warehouse using the Kalido Information Engine.
- The course familiarizes participants with a wide range of Kalido data warehousing functionalities and highlights features to help students maximize the benefits of a Kalido data warehouse.
