SQL Services Integration Services

5 Day Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) Course  – Solve complex data migration tasks

What is Integration Services?

Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) is an enterprise data integration, data transformation and data migration tool that is built into Microsoft’s SQL Server database. Its mainly used for a variety of  integration related tasks such as analyzing and cleansing data and running extract, transform and load processes.

About the course

This 5 day course will give delegates a thorough study on using SQL Integration Services (SSIS). The course will teach delegates how to build simple as well as complex data integration solutions using Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services. The course covers all aspects of development, deployment and administration of SSIS packages. The course is based on SQL Server 2012, but it is relevant also for SQL Server 2008/R2. The course will teach delegates how to implement SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) to export and import data between mixed data sources.

Delegates will learn how to carry out data cleansing tasks such as de-duplicating & fuzzy lookups. Further tasks covered include converging heterogeneous data sources through transformations such as merge and union.  We will also look at splitting single data sources into transformations such as conditional split, handle multiple import files with containers such as for and foreach loops, and much more.

In this course you will learn about the Microsoft SQL Server Visual Studio development environment for design, creation and management of SSIS packages, and work with Control and Data Flows to build workflows to extract, transform, and load data using a variety of data sources, transformations, and destinations. You will also become familiar with SSIS package management and package deployment along with learning to write solid code using debugging, error handling, and logging techniques.

Come enjoy the motivating atmosphere, learning with your peers while you discover the possibilities of SQL Integration Services.
