BigQuery is a scalable big data platform that can give you the insights you need to create a better customer experience and drive competitive advantage.

On this one-day course, our BigQuery experts will help you learn how to unlock more value from your business data. You’ll get to see the underlying architecture that makes the platform so powerful, and learn how to use the Structured Query Language (SQL) to explore, enrich, and generate insights from your data.

Using SQL, you'll examine an example GA4 dataset to help you understand your web analytics data and the main concepts of BigQuery. You’ll also get an overview of how to load and manage data in the platform. Toward the end of the session, we’ll cover best practices to help you get the most out of it.

Our Getting Started with Google BigQuery course is available as a private training session that can be delivered via Virtual Classroom or at a location of your choice in Australia.
