proven to be quite "challenging"...yea, that's the word. In fact, SSIS,
is a quantum leap in complexity and mindset above using DTS. It has
been many quirks, subtleties and rituals required to use it effectively.
While not 100% mature, it is very sophisticated and a powerful tool
for ETL tasks.
This book has proven to be very detailed for my needs and covers
almost all aspects of SSIS in extensive detail. It adequately explans all tasks
and how to use most every aspect and feature in creating and deploying SSIS solutions. It also
gives solid insight on best practices and guidelines on how specific
features are intended to work and not work.
The only way to really get going with SSIS is to have a comprehensive
reference so that you can understand using the tool to the greatest
degree possible. Highly recommended, very readable and useful.
I finally had to bite the bullet and get with the program; for me Books Online was hopeless, 'way too fragmented, if I could even find the topic that I was looking for. I disagree with a previous reviewer, this is not just a reference book, this is reference + tutorial. If you need to build an FTP task, for instance, pop over to page 151 and start following the directions. As Kirk works through the description of how to set it up, he explains why he's doing what he's doing. I'm finding this book to be one of the most valuable in my SQL 2005 collection.
Note that there are a couple of 'publisher errors' in the book such as missing Appendicies but the quality of information is still great.
I totally agree with some reviewers saying that this is a paper version of BOL. If you are looking for some simple overview of SSIS, this may be the one for you.
