Design, develop, deploy, and operate SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) solutions.
Developed in-house by Lucient, the Integration Services (SSIS) course focuses on developing and managing SSIS 2016 in the enterprise. In this course, you will understand how to design, develop, deploy, and operate SSIS solutions—this involves ETL solutions (extraction, transformation, and loading) from source systems extractions, data integration, SSIS server administration and package execution.
What Will I Learn?
In this course you will learn how to create and develop new SSIS projects and package and determine when to use project mode versus, how to apply SSIS to file and data managemen, to understand and apply ETL Concepts in SSIS including dimensions and fact table ETL and loading SSAS dimension and cubes and how to administer SSIS for server deployment and production execution.


  • Create and develop new SSIS projects packages.
  • Apply SSIS to file and data management.
  • Loading SSAS dimensions and cubes.
  • Determine when to use projects mode versus.
  • Understand and apply ETL concepts in SSIS.
  • Administer SSIS for sever deployment and production execution.

Target Audience

This course is intended for database professionals that are responsible for ETL or DBA activities related to data processing, data architecture planning, or SSIS administration.
The target audience for this session is IT professionals, DBAs and developers who want to learn the details of how to use SSIS to accomplish data integration, data warehouse loading, and how to administer SSIS through the development lifecycle to production.
