Designing an ETL Solution Architecture Using SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (2 Tage)

  • Plan data transfer and staging solutions for an ETL operation
  • Plan an SSIS Solution
  • Design and implement data flows
  • Incorporate logging, error handling, and reliability into a package
  • Optimize an SSIS solution
  • Deploy and operate an SSIS solution

2 Tage


Experienced Business Intelligence (BI) professionals. The target students for this course already have experience of using the SQL Server 2005 tools to implement ETL functionality, but need to develop their understanding of design principles and best practices when planning, implementing, and deploying an ETL solution.

  • Have hands-on experience with database development tasks. For example:
    • Creating Transact-SQL queries
    • Writing and optimizing advanced queries (for example, queries that contain complex joins or subqueries)
    • Creating database objects such as tables, views, and indexes
  • Be familiar with SQL Server 2005 features, tools, and technologies. In particular, they must have built an SSIS package
  • Have foundational conceptual understanding of data warehousing, data marts, and Business Intelligence. Students must be well-versed on the subjects of data warehousing, data marts, and BI, and preferably have read at least one book by Ralph Kimball or Bill Inmon.
  • Have a conceptual understanding of ETL processes.
  • Have foundational understanding of Microsoft Windows security. For example, how groups, delegation of credentials, and impersonation function in a security context.
  • Have foundational understanding of Web-based architecture. For example, SSL, SOAP, and IIS - what they are and what their role is.
  • Already know how to use:
    • Microsoft Office Visio
    • Microsoft SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio
    • Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio
    • Performance Monitor
    • Microsoft SQL Server Profiler

Module 1: Planning for ETL

In this module, Students will learn how to plan the way in which data will be transferred and staged in an ETL solution.

  • Identifying Data Sources and Destinations
  • Evaluating Source Data
  • Identifying Staging Requirements

Module 2: Planning an SSIS Solution

In this module, students will learn how to plan an SSIS-based ETL solution. Specifically, they will learn how to plan SSIS packages, how to plan an effective package development process, and how to design the control flow within the packages.

  • Planning Packages
  • Planning Package Development
  • Designing Package Control Flow

Module 3: Designing Data Flow

In this module, students will learn how to design data flows that extract, transform, and load data. They will also learn about factors to consider when working with slowly changing dimensions (SCDs) and when implementing custom SCD transformations.

  • Understanding Data Flow
  • Designing Data Flow Operations
  • Handling Data Changes

Module 4: Logging, Error Handling, and Reliability

In this module, students will learn how to incorporate logging, error handling, and reliability into your SSIS package designs. The module covers standard logging, custom logging, and log reporting. The module also teaches students how to implement error handling and how to handle bad data. Finally, the module shows students how to implement a transaction strategy, use checkpoints, and handle restarts and rollbacks.

  • Logging ETL Operations
  • Handling Errors in SSIS
  • Implementing Reliable ETL Processes with SSIS

Module 5: Optimizing an SSIS Solution

In this module students will learn how to monitor and optimize SSIS performance. They will also learn how to scale-out SSIS packages

  • Monitoring SSIS Performance
  • Optimizing SSIS Packages
  • Scaling Out SSIS Packages

Module 6: Deploying and Operating an SSIS Solution

This module describes considerations for deploying an SSIS solution into a production environment. It also discusses some of the issues related to operations and management that you must consider when planning an SSIS solution.

  • Deploying SSIS Packages
  • Operating an SSIS Solution
