This 4 day course is intended for IT professionals, business analysts, and developers who need to implement data transfer, or ETL (Extract, Transform, and Load), solutions by using Microsoft SQL Server 2016 or 2017 Integration Services. Students will learn about the SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) development environment to create SSIS projects and packages, work with Control Flow Tasks, and design Data Flows using a variety of transformations and data sources/destinations (including SQL Server databases, flat files, and Excel). Delegates will also learn about SSIS project and package management, deployment, debugging, error handling, and logging techniques. The training is delivered with plenty of illustrated examples and augmented with practical hands-on exercises.
With the course structure being fully modularised, customised versions of this course can also be devised and delivered. For example, clients interested in only the essentials of SSIS could attend just the first 3 days of the course, omitting the Advanced SSIS Concepts ordinarily covered on day 4.
No prior knowledge of the subject matter is assumed. However, students should ideally be familiar with basic programming concepts, and understand the fundamental design of relational databases and data normalization. Some prior working knowledge of SQL Server 2017 (or earlier), and the use of SQL Server Management Studio, is assumed. Attendees should additionally be familiar with the SQL query language, in particular the SELECT, UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE statements.
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
