Keboola Insights Course: Report Guru (Course 3)
Training credits can not be applied to this course.
Report Guru (RG) is the final course in the Zendesk Insights Advanced Learnings series. This course will build on your knowledge from Report Master to enhance your metric building skills. You will dive deeper into the sophisticated applications of Gooddata and how these applications can be used in Insights to answer your complex and unique business questions. The focus is on helping you start to think like an analyst and to create metrics, and in turn reports and dashboards, from scratch. This course is ideal for people with previous data modeling experience as its focus is on taking advanced concepts and applying them specifically to the Gooddata platform.
This course starts by looking at the Logical Data Model (LDM). This model illustrates how information is connected within Insights. A closer look at this model will help you understand the meaningful relationships between data and how you can use this understanding to create metrics from scratch. As with the previous courses, the guide will provide in-depth explanations and the Learning Tasks tab will provide you with the hands on experience you need to understand the concept.
You will also spend some time in this course learning about those data sets that are not connected to the LDM, or Disconnected Datasets. These standalone objects help you refine information and make your reports more meaningful through the appropriate use of filters.
Along with the higher level theory, RG also increases your knowledge of advanced MAQL syntax such as BY, WITHOUT PF, and BETWEEN. The help videos and hints in this course are especially useful for learning how to take the theory you have learned and turn it into practical metrics you can use. Once you have done all the tasks you will complete the challenge problems and earn your badge as Report Guru.
