South Austin - What is the SSIS Catalog? and Why do I care?

211 E. William Cannon Drive
Austin, Texas 78745
Time: 18:00 - 19:30

Special Notes:

South Austin - What is the SSIS Catalog? and Why do I care?

By Stan Geiger


Summary: SQL Server 2012 redefined how SSIS packages are stored and executed. The advent of the SSISDB catalog gives a central point for working with SSIS projects deployed to the server. From this catalog we can set project and package parameter, configure environments, and monitor execution. There is no need to build in package logging because Microsoft had done it for us. This presentation covers what is in the catalog, how to deploy packages, environment, tips and tricks as well as monitoring package execution.
