Overview

This three-day instructor-led course teaches delegates how to implement an Integration Services solution in an organization. The course discusses how to develop, deploy, and manage Integration Services packages.

Target Audience:

This course is intended for information technology (IT) professionals and developers who need to implement data transfer or extract, transform, and load (ETL) solutions by using Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Integration Services.

Those intending to take the 70-448 SQL Server 2008, Business Intelligence Development and Maintenance exam and 70-451 PRO: Designing Database Solutions and Data Access using Microsoft SQL Server 2008 exam will also benefit from attendance at this course.

Prerequisites

  • Exposure to enterprise data import and export scenarios.
  • Experience navigating the Microsoft Windows Server environment.
  • Experience with Microsoft SQL Server, including:
  • SQL Server Agent.
  • SQL Server query language (SELECT, UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE).
  • SQL Server System tables.
  • SQL Server accounts (users and permissions).

Delegates will learn how to

At the end of this course you will be able to:

  • describe SQL Server Integration Services and its tools.
  • create an Integration Services package.
  • implement control flow in an Integration Services package.
  • implement data flow in an Integration Services package.
  • implement logging in an Integration Services package.
  • debug and implement error handling in an Integration Services package.
  • implement checkpoints and transactions in an Integration Services package.
  • deploy an Integration Services package.
  • manage and secure an Integration Services package.
