If you are in the DFW area, come down to the Forth Worth SQL Server User Group tonight at the Frees and Nichols Headquarters. The meet and greet starts at 6:30pm and the presentation follows at 7pm. I’ll be giving an updated version of the following presentation.
Azure Data Factory and SSIS Automation With Biml
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.
Anyway, additional details about the meeting can be found here. Hope to see some of you there!
