Analyzing financial performance is crucial for every company as it provides valuable insights into its success. One way to do this is by looking at revenue trends. While many tools like Excel spreadsheets are available, using SQL is the best option if your business data is stored in a database. SQL lets you harness the power of your database through advanced queries on your data to generate revenue reports efficiently.

In this online course, you learn how to use the PostgreSQL database to analyze revenue trends. You query the database of a fictional online grocery store, working with data about customers, products, employees, and orders. You gain skills for creating various reports in SQL for analyzing trends: computing the total number of events, creating year-to-year, month-to-month, or quarter-to-quarter reports, computing the change between two different time periods, etc.

When you complete this PostgreSQL online course, you'll be able to gain similar insights about trends from data in other parts of your business, for example, website traffic over time, social media engagement, customer behavior analysis, inventory management, etc. Since every business has data about customers, products, and sales, we have selected an online store database as the course dataset. It is easy to modify the examples in this course to your business scenario.

This PostgreSQL online course is intended for users who know basic SQL concepts: how to use WHERE, GROUP BY, ORDER BY, and HAVING clauses, and how to join tables, among others. We introduce these concepts in our course, SQL Basics in PostgreSQL. If you are not familiar with these concepts, we recommend starting with those basics and returning to this course later.

This course is ideal for analysts, data science beginners, IT students, and anyone looking to work with data and generate reports. When you complete it, you will have the skills to create a wide range of revenue reports in PostgreSQL.
