This course enables the project administrators and ETL developers to acquire the skills necessary to develop parallel jobs in DataStage. The emphasis is on developers. Only administrative functions that are relevant to DataStage developers are fully discussed. Students will learn to create parallel jobs that access sequential and relational data and combine and transform the data using functions and other job components.
