About this Training

This course, available exclusively through Cloudera OnDemand, introduces CDP Data Visualization, a fully integrated visualization layer across CDP experiences and form factors. Through recorded demonstrations and expert instruction, the course guides you through the complete CDP Data Visualization workflow, from connecting to data to sharing interactive applications with a wider audience.

What Skills You Will Gain

During this course, you learn how to:

  • Access CDP Data Visualization from multiple CDP applications
  • Connect to data sources and import data
  • Create and modify datasets, and establish correlations and joins between tables
  • Produce visuals and customize their behavior and appearance
  • Set up, edit, configure, and share dashboards
  • Create, launch, and share applications
  • Customize workspaces for collaboration and access control

Who Should Take this Course

This course is designed for data scientists, data analysts, and business professionals who have an interest in creating data visualizations. Some prior understanding of tabular data and related concepts, plus having some experience with SQL, is beneficial, but not required.

To follow along with the demonstrations and to complete the suggested exercises, participants must have access to a CDP environment equipped to run CDP Data Visualization, either within Cloudera Data Warehouse or Cloudera Machine Learning, or access to a Cloudera Data Science Workbench (CDSW) instance in which they can run CDP Data Visualization.
