SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS) lets you build high-performance data integration solutions. SSIS solutions wrap sophisticated workflows around tasks that extract, transform, and load (ETL) data from and to a wide variety of data sources.
This Short Cut begins with an overview of key SSIS concepts, capabilities, standard workflow and ETL elements, the development environment, execution, deployment, and migration from Data Transformation Services (DTS).
Next, you'll see how to apply the concepts you've learned through hands-on examples of common integration scenarios.
Once you've finished this Short Cut, you'll have the background and understanding you need to start building your own SSIS integration solutions.
