SQL Server 2012 Integration Services Design Patterns is a book of recipes for SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS). Design patterns in the book show how to solve common problems encountered when developing data integration solutions. Because you do not have to build the code from scratch each time, using design patterns improves your efficiency as an SSIS developer. In SSIS Design Patterns, we take you through several of these snippets in detail, providing the technical details of the resolution.

SQL Server 2012 Integration Services Design Patterns does not focus on the problems to be solved; instead, the book delves into why particular problems should be solved in certain ways. You'll learn more about SSIS as a result, and you'll learn by practical example. Where appropriate, SQL Server 2012 Integration Services Design Patterns provides examples of alternative patterns and discusses when and where they should be used. Highlights of the book include sections on ETL Instrumentation, SSIS Frameworks, and Dependency Services.
