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

Teradata: Key Role in Telecommunication Analytics

Teradata, a US analytics solutions and applications provider, has said that there is a growing market for next-generation analytics in India amid intense competition among telcos and growing mobile phone penetration. Insights Carriers with increasing consumer focus require next-generation analytics to unify data from both the traditional and Big Data environments and transform it into meaningful insights - on how subscribers are consuming their services and in turn how they can improve their marketing tactics for upselling, customer retention, and loyalty. And ever since mobile number portability ( MNP) - a facility that allows subscribers to retain their numbers despite switching operators - was introduced late 2010 in India, customer retention has become a key imperative for service operators such as Vodafone India, Idea Cellular, and Bharti Airtel. Telecom Analytics "With rising teledensity, ensuing competition, and falling average revenue-per-user, telcos will have to look b
