Course Overview
(Music playing) Hi everyone. My name is David Schieber, and welcome to my course, Collecting and Preparing Data for MicroStrategy. I am an independent business intelligence consultant at Barefoot Data Science. My career strategy is probably one of the most flexible and versatile data discovery tools on the planet, covering both traditional business intelligence and data discovery. In this course, we are going to learn how to access data to make it possible to analyze within MicroStrategy. Some of the major topics we will cover include using the MicroStrategy Data Model, importing raw data, storing data in an in-memory intelligent cube, and using liveconnect functionality to directly connect to a database. By the end of this course, you'll know how to get data to use in MicroStrategy from a variety of sources with a variety of methods, and how to approach acquiring data from sources we have not discussed. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the data sources you're interested in acquiring data from. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn accessing data with the Collecting and Preparing Data from MicroStrategy course at Pluralsight.
