  • SSIS Design Pattern - ETL Instrumentation, Part 1

    Introduction   SSIS is a fantastic ETL engine. When I build an ETL solution in SSIS, I like to collect runtime metrics. Why? I use the data initially to determine a baseline for performance and to determine, in some cases, if I'm loading within a defined window.   I refer to this process of collecting ...

  • SSIS Design Pattern - Dynamic SQL

    Introduction I sometimes miss the ActiveX task in DTS. It was cool because ''if you could see it, you could change it.'' I used the ActiveX Task to generate dynamic SQL. When To Use Dynamic SQL In SSIS There are lots of uses for dynamic SQL in SSIS. If you find yourself using the same SQL statements over and over again with minor ...

  • Long life to TableDifference

    It seems that Microsoft will not improve the slow SCD component that is part of SSIS (at least, this is what I understand from this Microsoft Connect answer). This means that TableDifference has a long life because it will be useful even in SQL Server 2008. The versione 1.2 beta of TableDifference still needs some test because there is a latent ...

  • SSIS Script Task In SQL Server 2008 Can Use VB Or C#

    Where do I send a thank you letter? Finally we are allowed to use C# in the SQL Server Integration Services Script Task. I always wondered why SQL Server 2005 only uses VB and not C#, you can use C# in the SQLCLR but not in a Script Task. It turns out that SSIS in SQL Server 2005 uses VSA (Visual Studio for Applications) but SQL Server 2008 will ...

  • Is Microsoft serious about BI?

    The short answer is yes. The long answer is that Microsoft should still improve in many ways. I thought about this many times before writing this post, because I want to be constructive and I hope that my words will not be misunderstood. My consideration start from the lack of a BI client. If Microsoft want BI for the masses, a low-cost end-user ...

  • The need for a better merge component in SSIS

    Alberto Ferrari wrote an interesting post about the need of more properties to control the behavior of a Merge component in Integration Services (SSIS). This apparent simple problem becomes very important in large data warehouses. I hope that someone in Redmond will consider all these possible improvements...
