Introduction to SSIS

Virginia Mushkablat, Founder Hush Hush

This session is directed at the very beginner, the person who never used SQL Server Integration Services and wants to learn the basics. We will provide an overview of SSIS, its purposes, and how-to's of workflow and dataflow management. As an example, we will create a simple package that is a representative of a typical job that integration developer would do and schedule its execution.

SSRS from beginners to intermediate (SSRS on SSRS)

Steve Rezhener, Sr. Consultant Bank of America

In this session we will address the basic questions of SSRS (what, why and how). We will cover the many benefits SSRS has to offer as oppose to custom web development. In addition, we will briefly cover SSRS internals and build 3 reports to answer the ultimate SSRS infrastructure related questions: how many reports do we have (aka report inventory)? how often our reports are in-use - who, when and how often (aka daily usage)? how many subscriptions and what kind?. At the end, we will review code transparency technique using SQL Server and SSRS.
