Google Cloud Partner of the Year
A private training session for your team. Groups can be of any size, at a location of your choice including our training centres.

In this course, we discuss challenges with data integration and the need for a data integration platform (middleware). We then discuss how Cloud Data Fusion can help to effectively integrate data from a variety of sources and formats and generate insights.

We take a look at Cloud Data Fusion’s main components and how they work, how to process batch data and real time streaming data with visual pipeline design, rich tracking of metadata and data lineage, and how to deploy data pipelines on various execution engines.

Jellyfish has recently been named a Google Cloud Specialisation Partner of the Year. This title recognises our commitment to provide world-leading Cloud-based Training solutions that help our clients succeed.
