  • SQL Server 2017 Integration Services Cookbook

    I coauthored my 15th book Together with Christian Cote (lead author) and Matija Lah (coauthor) we publishes SQL Server 2017 Integration Services Cookbook. Of course, it is kind of early to say this is a definitive guide to SSIS 2017. More accurate name would be SSIS 2016 / 2017 Cookbook. Besides detailed guidelines how to use the 2016 version, you ...

  • Azure Automation – the beginning of cloud ETL on Azure?

    I have maintained a watching brief on what I refer to as “cloud ETL”, that is the ability build ETL routines in a cloud environment and therefore leverage all the benefits that the cloud model brings*. Thus far my main opinion piece in this area is What would a cloud-based ETL tool look like? in which I laid out what features I thought a cloud ETL ...

  • Automate Your ETL Infrastructure with SSIS and PowerShell

    SQLPASS TV channel has been published the session Automate Your ETL Infrastructure with SSIS and PowerShell that Allen White (@SQLRunr) has done during the PASS Summit 2013.  Abstract Much of your ETL process flow consists of packages that are very similar in structure, capturing data from a single source and transferring that to a single ...

  • Declarative ETL

    T-SQL is a declarative programming language. This means that a T-SQL developer defines what (s)he wants the query to do, not how to do it. The secret sauce that turns the “what” into the “how” is a piece of software called the query optimiser and there are tomes dedicated to how one can make the query optimiser dance to their will. Generally the ...

  • ETL is dead, long live AP2 ?

    Three days ago I posted What would a cloud-based ETL tool look like? where I wondered out loud about the sorts of tools data integration dudes like myself would be using in the future. I got some good feedback and already have a list of “stuff” to go and look at including: Boomi – They claim 1million cloud integrations (whatever one of those ...

  • What would a cloud-based ETL tool look like?

    Given that “moving data to the cloud” is, rightly or wrongly, currently in vogue in our industry I have to think that pretty soon there will be a glaring need for tools that help us to move data between these heterogeneous sources – a cloud-based ETL tool for cloud-based data if you will. Perhaps such a thing already exists - I’ve talked about ...

  • Simplifying CSV Data Loads

    Data files containing comma separated values, or CSV, are some of the most common data formats used for data representation and storage outside the database.  When it comes to loading CSV data into the database, many options exist, however, few make it as simple as CSVexpress, powered by expressor software.  I recently visited ...

  • Thoughts on Data Explorer

    To my mind the most interesting piece of news to come out of the recent PASS conference was the unveiling of a new SQL Azure Labs project coming from the SQL Server organisation that has the codename ''Data Explorer'' (not a very imaginitive codename I'm sure you'll agree) and for which there is information available at ...

  • ETL Demo With Data from Data.Gov

    A little over a month ago, I wrote an article (Is There Such a Thing as Easy ETL) about expressor software and their desktop ETL application, expressor Studio. I wrote about how it seemed much easier than the native ETL tools in SQL Server when I was reading up on the tool, but that the ''proof would be in the pudding'' so to speak when I ...
