Migrating Teradata Users to BigQuery (MTUBQ)

 

Course Overview

In this course you will learn how to translate various concepts in Teradata to the analogous concepts in BigQuery. You will learn how the high-level architectures of Teradata and BigQuery compare, understand differences in how to configure datasets and tables, map data types in Teradata to data types in BigQuery, understand schema mapping from Teradata to BigQuery, optimize your new schemas in BigQuery, and do a high-level comparison of SQL dialects in Teradata and BigQuery.

Who should attend

Data analysts, engineers, scientists, application developers, and more generally Teradata users who wish to transfer their skills and knowledge to BigQuery.

Prerequisites

Experience using Teradata as a data warehouse for managing data and performing SQL analysis. Basic experience with BigQuery is recommended, but not required for this course.
