Duration 4 Days

This 4-day instructor led training focuses on developing and managing SSIS 2012 in the enterprise. In this course, you will understand how to design, develop, deploy, and operate SSIS solutions—this involves ETL solutions (extraction, transformation, and loading) from source systems extractions, data integration, SSIS server administration and package execution.

Prerequisites

  • This course is targeted at database professionals and developers with some experience in business intelligence solutions and SQL Server.
  • This workshop requires no prior experience with SQL Server SSIS.

Who should attend?

This course is intended for database professionals that are responsible for ETL or DBA activities related to data processing, data architecture planning, or SSIS administration.

The target audience for this session is IT professionals, DBAs and developers who want to learn the details of how to use SSIS to accomplish data integration, data warehouse loading, and how to administer SSIS through the development lifecycle to production.

Delegates will learn how to

  • Create and develop new SSIS projects and packages
  • Determine when to use project mode versus package mode
  • Apply SSIS to file and data management
  • Understand and Apply ETL Concepts in SSIS including dimensions and fact table ETL and loading SSAS dimens on and cubes
  • Administer SSIS for server deployment and production execution
