On Monday night January 18, 2010 I will be presenting “SSIS for Developers” at HUNTUG, The Huntsville New Technology Users Group. The meeting kicks off at 6 pm, and we’d love to see you there. Their website has all the location information.
We’ve all been there. We develop a new system to replace some older system long overdue for retirement. The dread always comes around the data conversion step. Having to figure out the quickest, easiest way to get the data from the old system to the new. Or perhaps they have intense data processing that would be better handled by SQL Server, but is too complex for a T-SQL stored procedure. Importing data into their database from an external source, or performing complex data processing over large datasets.
What most developers don’t realize is that they already have an extremely powerful tool to solve both these and other problems: SQL Server Integration Services. SSIS isn’t just for feeding your warehouse, it’s also a great tool for data migration and processing. Come get an introduction and learn how you can be using SSIS for your projects.
The slide deck and main demo can be found at my Code Gallery site:
