Course Description

The purpose of this 2-day instructor-led course is to teach Business Intelligence (BI) professionals working in enterprise environments to design an extract, transform, and load (ETL) solution that supports their BI solution. Students will learn how to plan an ETL solution, and specifically how to design and implement a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) based ETL solution. They will also learn how to monitor, optimize, and deploy an SSIS solution.

The course focuses on the planning and design aspects of an ETL solution and does not teach students how to create SSIS packages or how to use the development tools provided with SQL Server 2005.



Audience

This course is intended for experienced Business Intelligence (BI) professionals. The target students for this course already have experience of using the SQL Server 2005 tools to implement ETL functionality, but need to develop their understanding of design principles and best practices when planning, implementing, and deploying an ETL solution.


Prerequisites

Before attending this course, students must:

Have hands-on experience with database development tasks. For example:

Creating Transact-SQL queries

Writing and optimizing advanced queries (for example, queries that contain complex joins or subqueries)

Creating database objects such as tables, views, and indexes

Be familiar with SQL Server 2005 features, tools, and technologies. In particular, they must have built an SSIS package.

Have foundational conceptual understanding of data warehousing, data marts, and Business Intelligence. Students must be well-versed on the subjects of data warehousing, data marts, and BI, and preferably have read at least one book by Ralph Kimball or Bill Inmon.

Have a conceptual understanding of ETL processes.

Have foundational understanding of Microsoft Windows security. For example, how groups, delegation of credentials, and impersonation function in a security context.

Have foundational understanding of Web-based architecture. For example, SSL, SOAP, and IIS-what they are and what their role is.

Already know how to use:

Microsoft Office Visio

Microsoft SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio

Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio

Performance Monitor

Microsoft SQL Server Profiler
