Hi Everyone -
We’ll be having our May meeting this coming Thursday, the 23rd at our usual place at the Microsoft Offices at 1290 6th Avenue at 6:00 PM. Kevin Goff, A Microsoft MVP, will be discussing the latest and greatest about SSIS. The full abstract is below. Please register at
SSIS has always been a good ETL product. In SQL Server 2012, SSIS got even better. Microsoft simplified certain ETL tasks to help new developers learn SSIS more quickly, and added new features that will be a hit to experienced ETL developers. In this presentation, I’ll cover all the new features in SSIS 2012: parameters, new tasks, simplified tasks, new expression functions, data taps for dynamically “tapping” into a data flow pipeline, better handling of invalid metadata references, and a greatly improved deployment model. SSIS 2012 also uses the new SQL Server Data Tools interface (the Visual Studio 2010 shell). After participating in this presentation, you might very well agree with me that SSIS has gone from “good” to “great” in 2012.
Refreshments and giveaways will be provided.
