Documenting SSIS Packages using Sequence Diagrams

November 25, 2020 by

In this article, I am going to explain in detail how to document SSIS packages using Sequence Diagrams and the importance of these diagrams in the field of software engineering, no matter which programming language are you using. In my previous article, I have talked about the various UML Diagrams that are being used to document various software engineering processes. Also, I have talked about modular ETL architecture and how to create such a modular package in SSIS. Sequence diagrams are also a part of the broader UML Diagrams which define the interaction between the various components in the system in a chronological manner.

Implementing a Modular ETL in SSIS

November 24, 2020 by

In this article, I am going to demonstrate about implementing the Modular ETL in SSIS practically. In my previous article on Designing a Modular ETL Architecture, I have explained in theory what a modular ETL solution is and how to design one. We have also understood the concepts behind a modular ETL solution and the benefits of it in the world of data warehousing. We have also related the concept of microservices architecture in software development to that of the modular ETL solution.

Designing a Modular ETL Architecture

November 17, 2020 by

In this article, I am going to demonstrate in detail the Modular ETL Architecture. ETL is a vast concept which explains the methodology of moving data across various sources to destinations while performing some sort of transformations within it. This is an advanced article that considers that the user has a substantial amount of understanding about how ETL is implemented using different tools like SSIS and the underlying working principle along with how to deploy multiple packages using SSIS. It is extremely important to implement a well-designed ETL architecture for your organization’s workload, otherwise, it might lead to performance degradations along with other challenges. To keep things simple, I will just explain the Modular ETL Architecture in this article which will be followed by a detailed hands-on tutorial in the next article – “Implementing Modular Architecture in ETL using SSIS”.
