About Google Cloud Certified – Professional Data Engineer Exam

The Professional Data Engineer exam enables data-driven decision-making by collecting, transforming, and visualizing data. The sole objective of a Google Cloud Certified – Professional Data Engineer is to design, build, maintain, and troubleshoot data processing systems with a particular emphasis on the security, reliability, fault-tolerance, scalability, fidelity, and efficiency of the systems.

Course Structure for Google Cloud Certified – Professional Data Engineer

Certified Professional Data Engineer analyzes data to gain insight into business outcomes, builds statistical models to support decision-making, and creates machine learning models to automate and simplify key business processes. The Google Cloud Certified – Professional Data Engineer exam assesses a candidates ability to –

1. Designing data processing systems

1.1 Selecting the appropriate storage technologies. Considerations include:

  • Mapping storage systems to business requirements
  • Data modeling
  • Tradeoffs involving latency, throughput, transactions
  • Distributed systems
  • Schema design

1.2 Designing data pipelines. Considerations include:

  • Data publishing and visualization (e.g., BigQuery)
  • Batch and streaming data (e.g., Cloud Dataflow, Cloud Dataproc, Apache Beam, Apache Spark and Hadoop ecosystem, Cloud Pub/Sub, Apache Kafka)
  • Online (interactive) vs. batch predictions
  • Job automation and orchestration (e.g., Cloud Composer)

1.3 Designing a data processing solution. Considerations include:

  • Choice of infrastructure
  • System availability and fault tolerance
  • Use of distributed systems
  • Capacity planning
  • Hybrid cloud and edge computing
  • Architecture options (e.g., message brokers, message queues, middleware, service-oriented architecture, serverless functions)
  • At least once, in-order, and exactly once, etc., event processing

1.4 Migrating data warehousing and data processing. Considerations include:

  • Awareness of current state and how to migrate a design to a future state
  • Migrating from on-premises to cloud (Data Transfer Service, Transfer Appliance, Cloud Networking)
  • Validating a migration

2. Building and operationalizing data processing systems

2.1 Building and operationalizing storage systems. Considerations include:

  • Effective use of managed services (Cloud Bigtable, Cloud Spanner, Cloud SQL, BigQuery, Cloud Storage, Cloud Datastore, Cloud Memorystore)
  • Storage costs and performance
  • Lifecycle management of data

2.2 Building and operationalizing pipelines. Considerations include:

  • Data cleansing
  • Batch and streaming
  • Transformation
  • Data acquisition and import
  • Integrating with new data sources

2.3 Building and operationalizing processing infrastructure. Considerations include:

  • Provisioning resources
  • Monitoring pipelines
  • Adjusting pipelines
  • Testing and quality control

3. Operationalizing machine learning models

3.1 Leveraging pre-built ML models as a service. Considerations include:

  • ML APIs (e.g., Vision API, Speech API)
  • Customizing ML APIs (e.g., AutoML Vision, Auto ML text)
  • Conversational experiences (e.g., Dialogflow)

3.2 Deploying an ML pipeline. Considerations include:

  • Ingesting appropriate data
  • Retraining of machine learning models (Cloud Machine Learning Engine, BigQuery ML, Kubeflow, Spark ML)
  • Continuous evaluation

3.3 Choosing the appropriate training and serving infrastructure. Considerations include:

  • Distributed vs. single machine
  • Use of edge compute
  • Hardware accelerators (e.g., GPU, TPU)

3.4 Measuring, monitoring, and troubleshooting machine learning models. Considerations include:

  • Machine learning terminology (e.g., features, labels, models, regression, classification, recommendation, supervised and unsupervised learning, evaluation metrics)
  • Impact of dependencies of machine learning models
  • Common sources of error (e.g., assumptions about data)

4. Ensuring solution quality

4.1 Designing for security and compliance. Considerations include:

  • Identity and access management (e.g., Cloud IAM)
  • Data security (encryption, key management)
  • Ensuring privacy (e.g., Data Loss Prevention API)
  • Legal compliance (e.g., Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), FedRAMP, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR))

4.2 Ensuring scalability and efficiency. Considerations include:

  • Building and running test suites
  • Pipeline monitoring (e.g., Stackdriver)
  • Assessing, troubleshooting, and improving data representations and data processing infrastructure
  • Resizing and autoscaling resources

4.3 Ensuring reliability and fidelity. Considerations include:

  • Performing data preparation and quality control (e.g., Cloud Dataprep)
  • Verification and monitoring
  • Planning, executing, and stress testing data recovery (fault tolerance, rerunning failed jobs, performing retrospective re-analysis)
  • Choosing between ACID, idempotent, eventually consistent requirements

4.4 Ensuring flexibility and portability. Considerations include:

  • Mapping to current and future business requirements
  • Designing for data and application portability (e.g., multi-cloud, data residency requirements)
  • Data staging, cataloging, and discover
