Over the past few months I’ve been working on a book for SQL Server 2012 entitled – SSIS Design Patterns. I’m co-authoring the book with a fantastic bunch of SQL Server MVPs – Tim Mitchell, Jessica Moss, Michelle Ufford, and Andy Leonard. Details are now available on the Apress website and Amazon.
SSIS Design Patterns is a book of recipes for SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS). Design patterns in the book show how to solve common problems encountered when developing data integration solutions. Because you do not have to build the code from scratch each time, using design patterns improves your efficiency as an SSIS developer. In SSIS Design Patterns, we take you through several of these snippets in detail, providing the technical details of the resolution.
SSIS Design Patterns does not focus on the problems to be solved; instead, the book delves into why particular problems should be solved in certain ways. You’ll learn more about SSIS as a result, and you’ll learn by practical example. Where appropriate, SSIS Design Patterns provides examples of alternative patterns and discusses when and where they should be used. Highlights of the book include sections on ETL Instrumentation, SSIS Frameworks, and Dependency Services.

Who this book is for
SSIS Design Patterns is for the data integration developer who is ready to take their SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) skills to a more efficient level. It’s for the developer interested in locating a previously-tested solution quickly. SSIS Design Patterns is a great book for ETL (extract, transform, and load) specialists and those seeking practical uses for new features in SQL Server 2012 Integration Services. It’s an excellent choice for business intelligence and data warehouse developers.
