Introducing her Rockbuster project, Bridget said:
Acting as a data analyst hired by the company’s business intelligence department, the task was to load all of Rockbuster’s data into a relational database management system and use SQL to analyze the data to answer any ad-hoc business questions that other departments may have. The results of the analysis were then compiled into an easily digestible format to be presented to the Rockbuster Stealth Management Board.
