Topic: Upgrading DTS Packages to SSIS
Date: November 15, 2011, 11:00AM EDT
The Microsoft "End of Life" policy for SQL 2000 has encouraged many organizations to seriously look at migrating their SQL2000 servers to SQL2005 or 2008. One of the biggest obstacles to a rapid migration is the DTS package issue. To gain the performance benefits and a supported path forward for the functionality in DTS, these packages should be converted into native SSIS. As we all know, the conversion is NOT straightforward. SSIS is more powerful and significantly different from DTS. Join us as Brian Knight shares his knowledge about why you should upgrade from DTS to Integration Services and options for converting DTS packages to native SSIS.
