SQL Server 2014 provides an Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) process to populate the data warehouse from the source systems. Examine ETL package design for gathering and transforming the source data.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • describe the common ETL data flow architectures used in a BI Project
    describe the considerations that affect the design of data extraction from the data sources
    describe how to minimize the load times and hardware resource utilization, and plan the extraction windows
    identify where transformations should take place and determine which transformation should be used
    design the ETL solution to support slowly changing dimensions (SCD)
    design ETL solutions to support change data capture
  • handle invalid rows by redirecting the rows
    use the Balanced Data Distributor, BDD, transformation to optimize package execution
    determine whether to use an incremental load or a full load on the data
    determine if aggregation operations should be completed directly in the SSIS pipeline or in the relational database
    load partitioned fact tables using best practices for an optimal load
    handle errors through error handling techniques and log audit information
