SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS)

SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) Courseware (55321AC)

The SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) course provides a comprehensive overview of SSIS, a powerful data integration and workflow application platform for SQL Server. Students will learn to use the Import/Export Wizard, work with solutions and projects, understand basic control flow, and explore common tasks. The course delves into data flow sources, destinations, transformations, dynamic package creation, containers, troubleshooting, and package reliability. Additionally, students will learn how to deploy to the SSIS Catalog, install and administer SSIS, and secure the SSIS Catalog. Throughout the course, hands-on labs help students gain practical experience and apply their knowledge to real-world scenarios.

This course is similar to the retired Course 20767-C: Implementing a SQL Data Warehouse but focuses more on building packages, rather than the entire data warehouse design and implementation.

The primary audience for this course is database professionals who need to fulfill a Business Intelligence Developer role. They will need to focus on hands-on work creating BI solutions including Data Warehouse implementation, ETL, and data cleansing.

This is the updated version of 55321AC from the retired Microsoft Courseware Marketplace.
