Benchmark- Database Query and Reporting Project

The purpose of this assignment is to organize, query, and report data using a database.

The final project consists of two parts and requires you to utilize the skills and knowledge you have learned throughout this course to create and implement a complex set of queries and present the data you have assembled into a PowerPoint presentation. It is essential for you to study the database structure and plan ahead throughout the course to ensure you will have the time to prepare and submit this assignment successfully.

Part One

You will use Microsoft SQL Server and the content from the AdventureWorks databases, as directed by your instructor, to complete the assignment.

Please note that when SQL queries are run, results are generated in the form of data. This data should be exported and saved to Excel for a visual check of accuracy.

Create a Word document that includes the SQL queries used to explore the database tables and address the problem.

Problem: The new scheduling manager has asked for a summary of hours worked each week by department. Accounting for NULL values, use the imported “Hours” sheet from the Topic 4 assignment, originally located in Course Materials, to SUM by department title for all employees on the table.

Part Two

Using the dataset you have developed, select one of the following groups to present your findings to at the upcoming company meeting: Senior Management, Engineering, Research and Development, or Marketing. In your presentation, model your data into a hypothetical problem that identifies how this information will impact the operations of the specific target audience you have selected.

Create a 5-7 slide PowerPoint presentation to share your results with your selected group at the upcoming company meeting. Each slide should include speaker notes written in complete sentences.

General Requirements

Compile the Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents into a .zip file and submit to your instructor.

While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
