This Professional Certificate is designed to provide you with the foundational knowledge, skills, and hands-on experience required to work with relational database management systems (RDBMSes), SQL (Structured Query Language), and NoSQL databases.
Organizations use relational databases (RDBMS) to manage and store data for its consistency and reliability, and SQL (Structured Query Language) to query and perform analysis for making critical and informed business decisions. Many organizations also deploy NoSQL databases for non-traditional use cases when scalability and high availability are needed.
Upon completing this program, you’ll have developed the skills and experience to work with relational databases like MySQL, PostgreSQL, and IBM Db2; query databases using SQL, as well as perform Create, Read, Update and Delete (CRUD) operations using NoSQL technologies and databases like MongoDB, Cassandra, and Cloudant.
Within each course, you’ll practice your skills with numerous hands-on labs and complete projects to add to your portfolio for demonstrating your proficiency using RDBMSes, SQL, and NoSQL.
To get started, all you need is basic computer literacy and the desire to learn and practice new skills.
