This three-day instructor-led course provides students who wish to administer and maintain a SQL Server data warehouse and ETL infrastructure using SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS).

Target Audience

The primary audience for this course is individuals who will administer and maintain a SQL Server data warehouse and create and maintain SSIS packages.

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Design a data warehouse
  • Build a data warehouse
  • Implement ETL control and data tasks
  • Control transactions and maintain consistency
  • Implement incremental updates
  • Manage and run packages
  • Debug packages

In addition to their professional experience, students who attend this training should already have the following technical knowledge: Essential:

  • Basic knowledge of the Microsoft Windows operating system and its core functionality.
  • Working knowledge of Transact-SQL. (equivalent knowledge to QATSQL and QATSQLPLUS)

Nice to have:

  • Working knowledge of relational databases.
  • Some experience with database design.
