COMP 4680 - Business Intelligence with SSIS, SQL Server Integration Services

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.

Course Details

This advanced course follows on from COMP 4677 and is designed for those who already understand relational database design, data modelling, SQL programming and MS SQL Server Administration but have little or no extract, transform, and load (ETL) experience. The course will cover ETL fundamentals, SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) tools, and SSIS package development. Students will use Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) in the lectures and labs to work with control flows, data flows, variables, package configuration and deployment, security, troubleshooting, logging and tuning. Students will also be introduced to ETL for the data warehouse. This course also helps to prepare for the SSIS component of the Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS): Business Intelligence Developer, which is available through third parties for additional fees. Successful participants will gain a deeper understanding of ETL and Business Intelligence using Microsoft tools. COMP 4680 is currently under review and is not being offered at this time.
