SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) is a tool that we use to perform ETL operations; i.e. extract, transform and load data.  While ETL processing is common in data warehousing (DW) applications, SSIS is by no means limited to just DW; e.g. when you create a Maintenance Plan using SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) an SSIS package is created.  At a high level, SSIS provides the ability to:

  • retrieve data from just about any source
  • perform various transformations on the data; e.g. convert from one type to another, convert to uppercase or lowercase, perform calculations, etc.
  • load data into just about any source
  • define a workflow

In this tutorial we will step through a number of topics that you need to understand in order to successfully build an SSIS package.  Our high level outline is as follows:

  • Creating SSIS packages with SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS)
  • Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS)
  • Creating a simple SSIS package in BIDS
  • Deploying SSIS packages
  • Executing SSIS packages
