My friend Matt Masson is also presenting a SQLBits 9 precon! Cross-posted from Matt’s blog:
SSIS Performance Design Patterns with Matt Masson
Need a fast data integration solution, but don't have the time or budget for heavy performance tuning? By selecting the right design, 90% of SSIS customers will achieve their ETL performance goals with little to no performance tuning. This session will teach you how to pick that design! Targeted at intermediate to advanced SSIS users, Matt Masson - a developer on the SSIS team - will guide you through a series of proven SSIS design patterns, and teach you how to apply them to solve many common ETL problems. We’ll start off with an overview of the Data Flow internals, and review the SQLCAT team’s Top Ten Best Practices for achieving optimal performance. We’ll then dive into a series of design patterns, including Advanced Lookup Patterns, Parallel Processing, Avoiding Transactions, handling Late Arriving Facts and multiple ways to process Slowly Changing Dimensions. If you’re looking for ways to maximize your SSIS ROI, then you won’t want to miss this!
