Introduction to multi-system integrations

It can be inefficient to download data from one tool and upload it to another. Automating the flow of information between cloud tools can save time and reduce data problems. Thanks to the rise of integration-as-a-service tools, you don’t need to be a data engineer to build automations between your systems.

In this course, you’ll learn how to evaluate integration strategies so that your data can move automatically between tools, saving you dozens of hours of manual effort. You’ll get familiar with triggers, documentation, and both sides of an integration (source and destination). By the end of the course, you’ll be able to get started on your data integration wish list — with no coding experience required.
