Some of the things he'll cover are: • Basic methodology for evaluating business requirements/needs, obtaining user cooperation, and identifying source data quality issues. • Data Warehouse basic concepts including Facts, Dimensions, Star and Snowflake Schemas. • Deep dive into slowly changing Dimension types and how to handle them using T-SQL and SSIS. • T-SQL Merge Fundamentals and how it can be used to load Dimension and Fact Tables. Yes, I swear the Merge Generation Code will be ready for the presentation. :) • Understanding the three basic Fact Table types, how they are used, and loaded with SSIS. • Date Dimension creation and configuration. • Taking advantage of SSIS 2012 functionality improvements including Environments, Project Parameters etc. • Strategies for SSIS and database optimization, insuring data integrity, etc. • And much, much more. Each session will progressively build upon the previous sessions and session material will be posted on his blog. Come watch this exciting and progressive series as David takes you from padawan to Jedi Master.
