Biml for Beginners: Speed up Your SSIS Development

Cathrine Wilhelmsen, DWH & BI Geek Cathrine Wilhelmsen Consulting

Are you tired of creating and updating the same SSIS packages again and again? Is your wrist hurting from all that clicking, dragging, dropping, connecting and aligning? Do you want to take the next step and really speed up your SSIS development? Say goodbye to repetitive work and hello to Biml, the markup language for Business Intelligence projects. In this session we will look at the basics of Biml. First learn how to use Biml to generate SSIS packages from database metadata. Then see how you can reuse code to implement changes in multiple SSIS packages and projects with just a few clicks. Finally, we will create an example project that you can download and start with to speed up your SSIS development from day one. Stop wasting your valuable time on doing the same things over and over and over again, and see how you can complete in a day what once took more than a week!
