This lesson takes you through a case study of a real-world scenario in a financial setting. We'll go through how data gets processed, stored, and presented for an insurance dashboard. This dashboard displays all different types of insurance and is powered by an underlying database. So over this lesson, you'll both see some specifics for the industry vertical of insurance and some specifics on how to process data.

This lesson is a little less technical than some of our other database-related content, so if you don't have Python or SQL skills, that's fine. This lesson is really ideal for those who want to learn a little bit more about how all of the pieces go together to understand more of where to dive in deeper.
