Course Overview

ITCare is a FREE half-day technical seminar series created by IT Professionals for IT Professionals! We’ll address the needs and issues today and show you how to make a real difference in the way that you work.

SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) offers a wide range of features and functionality that can be used to solve business pains within Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) processes. These pains can be caused by the performance of current ETL process, the maintainability of ETL processes or represent a new pain that SSIS features can resolve. This presentation will provide a demonstration of real world scenarios where features of SSIS were used to solve business pains through modification of existing SSIS packages or through the creation of new SSIS packages. The session will also discuss current best practices in SSIS package design.
