Every company needs to run analyses to check its performance on the market; after all, the analyses of revenue trends are among the most important indicators of commercial success. To this end, you can use multiple tools, such as Excel spreadsheets. However, if you store your business data in a relational database, the most ideal approach would be through SQL. This language allows you to perform sophisticated queries using your data and leverage the capabilities of your database to create revenue reports quickly.
In this online course, you'll learn how to use SQL to analyze revenue trends. However, although your main focus will be on revenue, you'll still gain knowledge on a variety of topics. In other words, once you complete the course on SQL trends, you'll be able to analyze other trends in a similar way (ie: website visits over time).
You'll also have many opportunities to use your SQL trend skills practically during this online course. By creating revenue reports, for example, you'll learn about real-world scenarios in which SQL might come in handy. As such, this course is ideal for analysts, data science beginners, IT students, and anyone aiming to work with data to generate reports. Once you complete the online course, you'll be able to create a wide range of revenue reports in SQL.
