Union Street Technologies, supplier of the award winning aBILLity™ billing platform, has added an SQL training course to its customer training programme. Microsoft SQL Server is the relational database management system on which the aBILLity billing platform is based. The course, which received an extremely positive response following trials in late 2013, has proved to be a resounding success with excellent feedback from customers.
The SQL course has been developed by Union Street’s training and consultancy team to cater for complete beginners to the world of SQL, although it assumes a basic level of IT literacy and familiarity with the telecoms industry. The course’s itinerary includes an introduction to what SQL is, how it works, how to extract and view data, and how to create bespoke reports. This is ideal for any aBILLity users that might need to create specific reports that go beyond aBILLity’s core reporting tools.
In addition, the course demonstrates the best practices to deploy when using SQL, providing tips on good housekeeping and maintenance, including how to back up databases and schedule backups into automated daily routines.
Union Street Managing Director, Tony Cook said, “We’re continually developing our training programme to ensure our clients have access to all the knowledge they need to use aBILLity to its full potential. We’re proud to provide more than just basic product training but also advice on best practices and the significant benefits of advanced training.”
