Data Warehouse Automation with metadata driven development

Working on your 20th staging package? Do you need to import 30 different flat files? Don't have the time to create all those packages?

With Biml - Business Intelligence Markup Language - you can cut back on development time by

  • generating your SSIS packages and database object using metadata.
  • turning tedious, repetitive work into reusable scripts.
  • automating general ETL patterns.

In this session, we will go over the basics of Biml and BimlScript and learn how we can use metadata to create a framework for automating your data integration tasks.

After this session, you can start with the automation of your SSIS packages.

A working knowledge of Integration Services package development is necessary for this session.

Also, thanks to our friends at Apress one lucky attendee goes home with a free copy of The BIML Book!
