T s u l offers an array of powerful functions that enabled the initiated to extract meaning from data stored inside SQL server databases. I introduce you to aggregation on ranking functions that will enable you to elevate the data to something concise and insightful. Every function you learn will provide you with the solution a common analytical problem. Everything you learn along the way and empower you to take control of your data.

Before beginning the course, you should have a working knowledge of the tea SQL language, the rudimentary, the standing of Data Analytics. I hope that you will join me on this journey to learn how to use analytical functions with T SQL Functions Playbook Course Pluralsight.
