This course is designed for those who are responsible for integrating and migration data using SQL Server and other data stores.
An understanding of basic relational database concepts, including:
- Logical and physical database design
- Relationships between tables and columns (primary key and foreign key, one-to-one, one-to-many, many-to-many)
- How data is stored in tables (rows and columns)
This course will enable delegates to master SQL Server Integration Services. Delegates also will be able to import and export data using a variety of formats, including Excel spreadsheets and CSV files. The course will cover using the SSIS designer to copy and transform data.
Four top takeaways from the course:
- Make your existing data work harder for you
- Integrate diverse data stores to a single repository
- Merge data from multiple sources
- Manage data from inside and outside your organisation
Module 1: Introduction to SQL Server Integration Services – SSIS

Scheduling a Package with SQL Server Agent
Securing a Package in Management Studio
Using Variables, Event Handlers and Configurations
- Use Import & Export Wizard to copy data between databases. Use the wizard to export selected tables to a new database you create on the same server.
- Transfer data from a CSV file into a table in SQL Server. Create a simple data flow that transfers data from a CSV file into a table in SQL Server.
- Use the Control Flow to integrate with an external process. A common technique for integrating a system like SSIS into an external orchestration process is through the use of semaphore files.
- Enhance the data flow by splitting the rows read from the CSV file into two streams. One of these streams continues to be loaded into the original table, but the second is loaded into a different table.
