Hands-on Labs Overview
SQL Server Integration Services
SSIS), the successor to DTS in SQL Server 2005, is an all-new applicationthat provides a data integration platform from easy-to-use tasks and transforms for the non-developer to arobust object model supporting creation of custom tasks data transformations. With the SSIS platform youcan create solutions integrating data from non homogenous data sources, cleansing, and aggregation aswell as work flow surrounding the data processing. SSIS goes beyond standard
xtractTransform Load) providing components such as Web Service, XML, WMI tasks, and many more. Add to therich list of out of the box components a full object model underneath, and users can create their own tasks,transformations, data sources/destinations, and Log Providers to suit almost any scenario.
udience and Pre-requisite knowledge
sers understand the roles and differences between the applications "Business Intelligence DevelopmentStudio" and "SQL Server Management Studio".
sers have basic understanding of SQL Server Integration Services functionality and for example have abasic understanding of the difference between "Control Flow" and "Data Flow" as well as know what "Logproviders", "Connection Managers", "Property
xpressions" do. I am looking for students to be familiarwith the terms and the general idea of all of the things mentioned above. It¶s ok if you have never playedwith them, just want terminology and general purpose to be familiar.
SQL Server Business Intelligence studio is used to create, edit, trouble shoot packages while the commandline tool µdtexec.exe¶ is what you will execute packages with in production environments.Someone can gear up on the above topics from the SSIS portal on MSDN.http://msdn.microsoft.com/SQL/sqlwarehouse/SSIS/default.aspx Where they can find links to the following two webcasts as well as other webcasts and articles.
