Overview

The aim of this course is to provide a clear understanding of the use of SQL for different
databases (Oracle, SQL Server, MS Access...). Understanding of analytic functions and the
way how to join different tables in a database will help delegates to move data analysis
operations to the database side, instead of doing this in MS Excel application. This can also
help in creating any IT system, which uses any relational database.
