7. Query Service

In this module, you will get a hands-on preview of Adobe Experience Platform Query Service. Query Service lets you perform omnichannel queries across all Adobe Experience Cloud application data, joining and analyzing data across Adobe Campaign, Analytics, Audience Manager, Target, and Advertising Cloud and other customer data loaded/inserted into Adobe Experience Platform.
Query Service is a serverless tool. It supports SQL queries and connectivity from multiple client applications through its PostgreSQL compatibility. We will use data that has been injected into platform using either Web Interaction Data, Call Center Interactions in combination with Customer Loyalty Data uploaded into platform.

Learning Objectives

  • Become familiar with the Adobe Experience Platform UI
  • Connect to Query Service and run your SQL queries
  • Explore datasets in Adobe Experience Platform
  • Connect Tableau or Power BI to the Adobe Experience Platform Query Service to create visualizations and reports

In this you will learn about the basic Query Service syntax and you can identify the attributes of the XDM schema in your query.
In this you will be doing queries, you will learn about the Adobe Defined Functions while doing some churn analysis. At the end of this you will write a query to prepare a dataset for use in Microsoft Power BI.
In this you will generate a dataset from a query executed in the previous and you will use this dataset in Power BI or Tableau to to Callcenter Interaction Analysis.
