This Blog is for those interested in enhancing their skillset in Database ,T-SQL, SQL Server Analysis services (SSAS) - multidimensional analysis tool,SQL Server Reporting services (SSRS) - reporting framework ,
SQL Server Integration services (SSIS) - built-in ETL tool and Visualization tools (i.e. Qlikview & Tableau)
Informatica and SSIS offer similar functionality for moving data around your organization, but scratch below the surface and you will find some big differences in how these tools approach common ETL problems. If you are interested in migrating ETL processes to Integration Services, then this webinar will be highly beneficial. We will cover some common patterns found in Informatica, and explain how to get the same results from SSIS. For more advanced Informatica scenarios, we will also cover the use of PragmaticWorks’ Task Factory components to fill in some of the gaps in Integration Services.
The Microsoft SQL Server Distributed Replay feature helps you assess the impact of future SQL Server upgrades. You can also use it to help assess the impact of hardware and operating system upgrades, and SQL Server tuning. Similar to SQL Server Profiler, you can use Distributed Replay to replay a captured trace against an upgraded test environment. Unlike SQL Server Profiler, Distributed Replay is not limited to replaying the workload from a single computer .Distributed Replay offers a more scalable solution than SQL Server Profiler. With Distributed Replay, you can replay a workload from multiple computers and better simulate a mission-critical workload. The Microsoft SQL Server Distributed Replay feature can use multiple computers to replay trace data and simulate a mission-critical workload. Use Distributed Replay for application compatibility testing, performance testing, or capacity planning. In this session we will cover the following: what is SQL Server Distributed Replay, Distributed Replay concepts , benefits of Distributed Replay, when to use Distributed Relay.
