Microsoft SSIS SQL Server Integration Services
1. Development of ETL process:
Microsoft SSIS – as Integration Service: The primary purpose of SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) packages is to provide the mechanism for extraction, transformation and loading of data into the data warehouses. As Microsoft itself says that SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) “is a platform for building high performance data integration solutions, including extraction, transformation, and load (ETL) packages for data warehousing.” The SSIS services take data from disparate sources like flat files, xml files, CSV files and relational data sources and then transform them accordingly and load to their respective destinations.
- The process of developing ETL based solutions is generally faster than other methods
- It automates the process of data loading into your data warehouse or operational system
- It gives much better performance in loading and transformation process than hand-coded or manual solutions
- The objects in ETL tool are reusable
2. Migration of DTS Packages to SSIS:
Royal Cyber Inc. Business Intelligence consultants use SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS)which provides several options for preserving solutions created by using the SQL Server 2000 Data Transformation Services (DTS) tools and object model. You can migrate DTS packages to the Integration Services format, continue to run DTS packages by using the DTS runtime, or incorporate DTS packages into Integration Services solutions by using the Execute DTS 2000 Package task. Our SQL Server SSIS Consultants can guide you through this migration process.
Why use SSIS instead of DTS:
- It is likely that Microsoft will discontinue the support for DTS/ SQL SERVER 2000 later or sooner, so it better to migrate your DTS
- packages as soon as possible
- Separation of Data Flow Engine from the Control Flow Engine or SSIS Runtime Engine and hence improves the performance by a significant amount
- The DTS uses ELTL strategy (i.e. they have first to load data from files to data base before making transformations) while SSIS uses ETL strategy.
- Compiled code rather than scripts
- Package Configuration. Using expressions and configurations it is much easier to make packages dynamic
3. Data migration from other database:
Are you migrating huge data of your company into some other operational data base? We can help you with this by developing SSIS packages that can transform your data to make sure that it complies the rules of the data base in which you want to migrate your data
4. Solve Complex Business problems:
We can use SSIS to solve complex business issues such as encrypt files and then send them to certain network locations, email bursting to certain groups on basis of some events etc. We develop SSIS packages to address the complex business scenarios.
5. Managing and automating SQL SERVER objects:
The manual management of data base objects needs your valuable financial and personnel resource. But we have a solution for you. We can automate the management of SQL SERVER objects through SSIS packages.
Save your resource time for managing SQL SERVER objects
This will eventually brings monetary saving to you
Benefits of using SSIS:
New Features of SSIS 2008:
- CDC: Change Data Capture: SSIS 2008 captures the changes using insert, update, delete and merge commands
- Improved scripting: In SQL SERVER 2008(Katmai), Microsoft introduces new scripting engine which allows C# to be used as a scripting language (of course VB.NET too). It also makes it easier to reference all .Net assemblies, which enables a number of common scenarios (such as easier web service integration).
- Enhanced ADO.NET Support: The recent version replaced the “DataReader Source and Destination adaptors” with the “ADO.NET” ones
- DFT improvements: The new Data Flow engine has process of our execution trees with smarter thread allocations. On multi-processor environment the Data flow task shows about 80% of improvement in performance
- Introducing Data Profiling Task and Data Profiling Viewer: You can profile data that is used in SQL SERVER using this task
