Get up and running in designing, and implementing ETL solutions using SSIS 2016.


Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) processes have become a necessity in IT today. Being able to move data from one place to another has become a cornerstone in just about every company worldwide. SQL Server 2016 provides Integration Services (SSIS) that allow database administrators (DBAs) and developers alike to create and deploy advanced ETL packages to leverage the data within their organizations.

Whether a company has a one-time data copy or a large ETL process to design, they want to be able to complete their work as easily as possible. With SSIS now being included with the SQL Server platform, it is one of the easiest and most cost-effective methods available to a shop running SQL Server.

IT shops can have hundreds of software developers, all running and developing applications for SQL Server. In addition, hundreds of third-party applications use SQL Server for storage. All this data, sooner or later, will require that companies be able to consolidate and analyze it. Familiarity with an ETL tool will become an absolute necessity when data needs to be moved for consolidation, reporting, and data mining.

Introduction to SQL Server 2016 Integration Services (SSIS) LiveLessons covers the basic building blocks of SSIS. Topics include design best practices, control flows, data flows, and deployment and scheduling of packages.
