This is just a quick shout out for anyone attending the PASS Summit. I am giving two presentations, and couldn’t be more pumped. First, I’m giving the following Lightning Talk in 2 hours:
Three Things You Won’t Believe I Do With Biml
Time: 4:45PM – 6:00PM
You may have seen a basic Biml presentation in the past, perhaps a data staging pattern moving records from one database to another, and that’s all great. In this presentation I will amaze and astound you with advanced applications of Biml that I guarantee you have never seen. In front of your very eyes, I will use small amounts of BimlScript to tackle problems that have vexed ETL developers for years.
I will also be presenting the following 75 minute presentation on Friday.
Azure Data Factory and SSIS Automation With Biml
Time: Friday 3:30PM – 4:45PM
SSIS was originally designed to work in a world where all data was structured and on premise. As modern enterprise data projects increasingly move online, tools like Azure Data Factory (ADF) can extend SSIS capabilities to the cloud. Azure Data Factory is a flexible and powerful cloud based ETL service, but it doesn’t replace the functionality of SSIS.
In this session you will learn the advantages and disadvantages of both ETL platforms; how to use both in tandem to maximize productivity;
and how both ETL platforms, as well as any supporting structures, can be be automatically generated with Biml Script.
So, if you’re attending the PASS Summit, I’d love to see you there!
