SQL Server Integration Services (often abbreviated to SSIS) allows you to automate the import, export and conversion of data. Whether you want to fill your data warehouse each evening with that day's transactions (whatever they may be) - or simply learn how SSIS fits into the wider SQL Server picture - this course is for you!

Refreshingly, the course doesn't use any large, impenetrable Microsoft database, but instead uses a simple Wise Owl one, and the exercises use simulated examples of real-life tasks.


You must have a basic understanding of SQL and SQL Server to attend this course (you don't need to be a rocket scientist; just be able to navigate your way round a SELECT statement). This course uses SQL Server 2012 (although if you're using 2014 you'll find it just as useful, as there are virtually no differences between the versions).

If you're using SQL Server 2008 R2 you should be aware that there are differences between the versions, but it is our opinion that 80-90% of the course will still be useful. Alternatively, you could consider booking onsite training in SSIS 2008 R2 (or even 2005!).
