This course will enable technology professionals with little or no ETL experience and minimal exposure to SQL Server 2008 and Visual Studio 2008 to be comfortable and productive with the SSIS tools and technologies. In this course you will learn about the SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) and building Database Maintenance Plans. You will be introduced to the Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) and working with Control Flow and Data Flow. You will also become familiar with SSIS package management and package deployment along with learning to write solid code using debugging, error handling and logging techniques.

Who Should Attend?
This course assumes no prior knowledge of SQL Server Integration Services. This course does assume prior knowledge of SQL Server 2008 and the use of SQL Server Management Studio for development and administrative tasks. You should be able to create CRUD (create, retrieve, update, and delete) queries using T-SQL, understand basic relational databases design, run script files and diagnose problems that occur, and have experience building applications that access data stored in SQL Server. You must also know how to connect to an instance of SQL Server 2008 using the various connection dialog boxes in Management Studio and development tools.
