General SSIS Training FAQs

  • Is this course an SSIS tutorial for beginners?

    This is an intermediate-level SQL training course. We recommend ome knowlede of relational databases management systems, programming concepts, and SQL language prior to taking this course.

  • What is the SSIS package?

    Microsoft Integration Services is a platform for building enterprise-level data integration and data transformations solutions. You use Integration Services to solve complex business problems by copying or downloading files, sending e-mail messages in response to events, updating data warehouses, cleaning and mining data, and managing SQL Server objects and data. The packages can work alone or in concert with other packages to address complex business needs. Integration Services can extract and transform data from a wide variety of sources such as XML data files, flat files, and relational data sources, and then load the data into one or more destinations.

  • Who will benefit from this course?


    It is essential for organisations to securely manage data migration amongst a myriad of platforms to enhance their business intelligence capabilities. In this course, attendees learn to leverage SQL Server Integration Services to extract, transform, load and integrate data from a variety of sources. Typical participants include database developers and analysts who need to migrate data amongst diverse platforms. Database administrators who need to manage Integration Services packages stored on SQL Server and database professionals working in mixed environments of DBMSs such as Oracle, Access and SQL Server will benefit from this course.

  • How much of this class is focused on scripting and/or programming? 


    Most tasks in this course can be accomplished with no programming.  You will learn to use programming to extend the capabilities of SSIS even if you have never programmed before. All of the necessary information to complete the exercises will be given in the course.

  • What is the role of SSIS in Business Intelligence?


    SSIS is one of the components in Microsoft's Business Intelligence platform. The other two consist of Reporting Services and Analysis Services. SSIS allows you to migrate data for decision support purposes. Once migrated, data can be analysed with Analysis Services and reports can be built using Reporting Services.
