Overview

Installing IBM Cloud Pak for Data on-premises for the first time can be a daunting task. This course aims to demystify and streamline that process for learners new to the Cloud Pak for Data ecosystem.

This course follows Emily, a Cloud Pak for Data administrator. Emily is assigned to install the Cloud Pak for Data platform on a Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform cluster that has been provisioned to her by the Red Hat OpenShift administrator. Emily is new in the world of Cloud Pak for Data and has never done this before.

Throughout this course, Emily plans out the installation of IBM Cloud Pak for Data and additional services, prepares the cluster, and installs the IBM Cloud Pak for Data platform. Later, Emily also upgrades IBM Cloud Pak for Data 4.8.x to a newer version.

Together with Emily, you learn step-by-step how to perform each task in this course. Ultimately, you also verify your newly acquired knowledge in a series of hands-on exercises performed in a custom-made course lab environment as well as in a final assessment.
