SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS)

Microsoft’s Data Management and Analytics offerings you need to succeed!

While almost every production DBA will have at least some daily interaction with SSIS packages generated by maintenance plans or Data Import/Export wizards, these objects barely scratch the surface of a powerful development and management platform capable of providing complex ETL solutions across a wide array of disparate data sources. Having evolved from a simple add-on for SQL 7 to its own discipline supported by a vast developer community, SSIS’s long history and broad flexibility is represented by multiple product generations, each introducing significant changes across the ETL package lifecycle, requiring a specialized skill set for effective development and management.
