Presents forty-nine lessons that focus on the essential part of SQL Server Integration Services, covering such topics as creating and editing tasks, developing Control Flows, loading a data warehouse, and using variables and expressions.
All medium to large companies have to deal with data being stored in a number of databases, spreadsheets and proprietary applications. Bringing all this data together into one system can be useful to analyzing the business; but can also be quite difficult to do. Integration Services is the next big bet in Microsoft's business intelligence lineup, providing you with true enterprise extract transform and load features (ETL). Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Integration Services concentrates on providing you with real world solutions to real world problems, giving you a head start on various projects.
