In this course, you will learn how to develop and orchestrate ETL and ELT data pipelines with KNIME Analytics Platform following best practices and data governance principles. Besides, you will learn data anonymization techniques and tools to process big data on-premise and on cloud. 

In the first session of this course, you will focus on the data extraction part of an ETL pipeline, recap common data sources, and learn best practices for secure, governed, and efficient data access. In the second session, you will focus on data transformation and loading parts of an ETL pipeline and will be introduced to data anonymization techniques. In the third session, you will learn how to build an ELT pipeline and learn how to handle big data with the Apache Spark integration, on-premise and on cloud. Finally, in the fourth session, you will learn how to orchestrate data pipelines, and dive deeper into data governance topics and learn how to monitor data quality, ensure data security, and enable observability.

This is an instructor-led course consisting of four, 75-minute online sessions run by one of our KNIME data scientists. Each session has an exercise for you to complete at home and together, we will go through the solution at the start of the following session. The course concludes with a 15 to 30 minute wrap up session.

  • Session 1: ETL vs ELT, ETL: extraction
  • Session 2: ETL: transformation and loading, data anonymization
  • Session 3: ELT, big data, Hadoop, Spark, cloud
  • Session 4: Data pipelines orchestration, data governance
  • Session 5: Q&A
