What does this course cover?

Developed in-house by SolidQ, the Integration Services (SSIS) course focuses on developing and managing SSIS 2012 in the enterprise. In this course, you will understand how to design, develop, deploy, and operate SSIS solutions—this involves ETL solutions (extraction, transformation, and loading) from source systems extractions, data integration, SSIS server administration and package execution.

Who is this course designed for?

  • Database professionals that are responsible for ETL or DBA activities related to data processing, data architecture planning, or SSIS administration
  • IT professionals, DBAs and developers who want to learn the details of how to use SSIS to accomplish data integration, data warehouse loading, and how to administer SSIS through the development lifecycle to production.

Pre-requisites: What do you need to know?

  • Basic experience in business intelligence solutions and SQL Server
  • No prior experience with SQL Server SSIS is required

All our courses can be offered as a private delivery and tailored for your team's specific needs
