SQL Server Integration Services Core Skills
SQL Server Integration Services is Microsoft's primary tool for ETL (Extract-Transform-Load) processing. This course is designed to take you through the most important aspects of SSIS, with just the right amount of depth, within two days.

The course is most suitable for developers that need to learn to work with the Microsoft BI platform or for existing SQL Server developers and DBAs that want to cross-train into BI work. The course can also help business analysts and project managers that need a solid understanding of the technologies involved. While not essential to complete the labs (as full detailed instructions are provided), some knowledge of T-SQL would be helpful.

The course looks at what's involved in creating a data model that is suitable for analysis and reporting. During the first day, you'll gain confidence in using the tooling provided by SQL Server Integration Services for ETL (Extract-Transform-Load) processing. In the second day, you'll learn about how to use these tools to load a dimensional model and how to optimise the performance of your ETL processing.

While our courses are based on SQL Server 2016, we realise that many customers are not yet running that version. Rather than provide you a course that only covers a single version of SQL Server, our courses are designed to be relevant (wherever possible) to a range of SQL Server versions including SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2012 and SQL Server 2014. Where there are differences between versions, the differences are clearly highlighted.
