You will learn how a modern data stack is put together and the overall architecture.
You will take a deep dive into each component and what functions it performs.
You will explore the important requirements and selection criteria for each component.
Historically, large enterprises would build out what was called a “data platform” to support the flow of data across their organization. The data platform was a mesh of data technologies to support specific applications (including analytics) along with integration points between these as needed, both custom or using integration technologies.
