SQL Query: 3 Methods for Calculating Cumulative SUM

Image
SQL provides various constructs for calculating cumulative sums, offering flexibility and efficiency in data analysis. In this article, we explore three distinct SQL queries that facilitate the computation of cumulative sums. Each query leverages different SQL constructs to achieve the desired outcome, catering to diverse analytical needs and preferences. Using Window Functions (e.g., PostgreSQL, SQL Server, Oracle) SELECT id, value, SUM(value) OVER (ORDER BY id) AS cumulative_sum  FROM your_table; This query uses the SUM() window function with the OVER clause to calculate the cumulative sum of the value column ordered by the id column. Using Subqueries (e.g., MySQL, SQLite): SELECT t1.id, t1.value, SUM(t2.value) AS cumulative_sum FROM your_table t1 JOIN your_table t2 ON t1.id >= t2.id GROUP BY t1.id, t1.value ORDER BY t1.id; This query uses a self-join to calculate the cumulative sum. It joins the table with itself, matching rows where the id in the first table is greater than or

Data Vault 2.0 (DV2) is a system of business intelligence that includes: modeling, methodology, architecture, and implementation best practices. The benefits of Data Vault The components, also known as the pillars of DV2 are identified as follows: DV2 Modeling (changes to the model for performance and scalability) DV2 Methodology (following Scrum and agile best practices) DV2 Architecture (including NoSQL systems and Big Data systems) DV2 Implementation (pattern-based, automation, generation Capability Maturity Model Integration [CMMI] level 5) There are many special aspects of Data Vault , including the modeling style for the enterprise data warehouse. The methodology takes commonsense lessons from software development best practices such as CMMI, Six Sigma, total quality management (TQM), Lean initiatives, and cycle-time reduction and applies these notions for repeatability, consistency, automation, and error reduction. Each of these components plays a key role in th
