Data Extractor – Intermediate

Course Objective:

The purpose of the course is to give participants advanced knowledge about our integrated Data Extractor tool and the Dimension database that it is used.

You know how to create a simple DEX but sometimes:

  • You get multiplied outputs in inline views / joined tables
  • You cannot find a path to the more exotic fields
  • You cannot get the right aggregation level of some values
  • In general, understand the concept of Data Extraction but feel you could use some more practice

The course will be a mixture of theory, SimCorp Dimension presentations, hands-on exercises and Home assignments. A 1-on-1 session is organized to go through the assignments and discuss questions, problems faced.
