Introduction to SQL Server Integration Services
|Everyone who works with
data ought to get to know SQL Server Integration
Services (SSIS) the successor to SQL Server's DTS
tool for importing and exporting data. It's not
just a reworking of the old DTS, instead it's a
complete high performance ETL (Extract Transform and
Load) tool that competes with the best of breed ETL
products but comes packaged with the SQL Server and
embedded in Visual Studio. It can be intimidating
at first but once you get to know your way around
it's not difficult and can be extremely powerful.
