 Course Description

This three-day instructor-led course teaches students how to implement an Integration Services solution in an organization. The course discusses how to develop, deploy, and manage Integration Services packages. This course is 95 percent relevant to SQL 2005 users and is the recommended training solution for those people looking to learn SSIS for SQL 2005. The concepts, tools and best practices are almost identical between SQL 2005 and 2008. Please note; at times there are new features of SQL 2008 that are covered which are not available to SQL 2005 implementations.

 Course Outline

Audience

This course is intended for information technology (IT) professionals and developers who need to implement data transfer or extract, transform, and load (ETL) solutions by using Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Integration Services.

Objectives

    After completing this course, students will be able to:
  • Describe SQL Server Integration Services and its tools.
  • Create an Integration Services package.
  • Implement control flow in an Integration Services package.
  • Implement data flow in an Integration Services package.
  • Implement logging in an Integration Services package.
  • Debug and implement error handling in an Integration Services package.
  • Implement checkpoints and transactions in an Integration Services package.
  • Deploy an Integration Services package.
  • Manage and secure an Integration Services package.

Prerequisites
