SQL Server Integration Service (SSIS) is a component of the Microsoft SQL Server database software that we use to execute a wide range of data migration tasks. SSIS is a fast & flexible data warehousing tool used for data extraction, loading, and transformation like cleaning, aggregating, merging data, etc. It makes it easy to move data from one database to another database. SSIS can extract data from a wide variety of sources like SQL Server databases, Excel files, Oracle and DB2 databases, etc.

We use SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) as part of our on-premise Data Warehouse architecture. We have an ELT pattern and SSIS is used almost exclusively for the Extract and Load steps. Almost all packages are generated using BIML (Business Intelligence Markup Language) as a means of templating and then scripting them.

SSIS is an on-premise data transformation tool and the first major ETL tool we have used. We use it to ETL data from Workday, and other internal applications/databases to our internal databases. The product addresses the issue of getting data from CSV files from our SFTP and performing update/insert/delete operations on the data in our internal databases.

We are currently using SQL Server as our central relational database. Getting data from multiple sources to our data depository is smooth. We use SQL Server Integration Services to copy and download large files as well as to draw out and modify data from several sources of data like XML data files, DB2 databases, and relational data sources and then load the data into a single destination.

SQL Server is the legacy Database and Data Warehouse in the company. SSIS is used for most ETLs where the data is sourced from / put into SQL Server, depending on the use case. It is an MS native and easy-to-use ETL tool that comes with the SQL Server Data Tools suite. I use the tool personally to deploy ETLs for business stakeholders as a request arises.

A good tool for SQL server query and data migration. The way it stores data and makes it easier for the user to write queries over the server. Compatibility with different BI tools is awesome as it is easy to integrate Microsoft SQL servers with different BI tools like google data studio and PowerBI.

Microsoft's SQL Server Integration helps in keeping a track of our data dump in a suitable & orderly manner. The service not only helps in making sure the data is readily available but it also helps in bifurcating the data according to our needs & requirements. The data is quickly available when needed & helps in our workings on a daily basis.

In our organization, we have two Microsoft windows servers. We integrate their data sync via SQL Server Integration Services. It's easy for us to migrate our data from one server to another server. The debugging capabilities are great, particularly during data flow execution. We can look into the data and see what's going on in the pipeline.

We used Integration Services to extract and transform data from a wide variety of sources such as XML data files, flat files, and relational data sources, and then load the data into one or more destinations. We also used the graphical Integration Services tools to create business solutions for the firm.

As a BI / Data Analyst, I have to deal with multiple data source integrations independent of to live environment. So, I have to combine data query many query tables. I need to maintain the schemas of databases with multiple data sources.

Being part of the Healthcare department, we need to automate the data transfer from and to the company and hospitals. SQL Server Integration Services, allowed us, to create a robust platform, to process millions of records from each hospital everyday, the whole year, just taking care of small incidents, such formats, not related to the SSIS, itself. So, we relied on this process for keeping the data and the collection, working efficiently and providing outstanding service.

SQL Server Integration Services is an extremely powerful tool that we're using exclusively for SQL Server inventory and other jobs. While it is very powerful, it's also not exactly intuitive in my opinion. I had not used this before my current job, and it was already setup when I joined. I've had to edit some of those jobs a handful of times and I just have not yet been able to make it 'click' in how it works. I seem to think oppositely of how this was designed (potentially just the jobs I've had to interact with), but almost everything is counter-intuitive.

SQL Server Integration Services has been useful in implementing Extract, Load, and transform logic from various sources and destinations. we also use it to download data files from SFTP, FTP locations. We use it to refresh extract in tableau and run other 3rd party services via executing process tasks. It has been useful to address many other such challenges.

We use SQL Server Integration Services to consolidate data from multiple vendor products. SSIS is the engine that gathers that data and stores it on our main SQL database instance for reporting purposes. It is being used by the enterprise in our organization. It created one pain of glass using SQL Reporting Services to show what systems are in what vendor products - such as agents installed yes/no? Last checking date/time, etc...

We are using the SSIS as a major data export/import & converter between different data sources, including relatively old legacy stuff out from 90th. The beauty of SSIS is really advanced capabilities of data converts and mix up the data from different sources with all respect to keys and data relations. We use this mostly as an addition to the SQL Server Express edition (as a part of the import/export wizard) but on the sandbox I doing the tests of SQL Server 2016 Standard edition to mix up several RDBMS for data extraction into one data warehouse.

SQL Server Integration Services is used by our department to support the entire organization. Several developers design our packages and as well our DBA team who develops, reviews, and implements these in production.
SSIS is a critical component in making data available across disparate systems from custom databases to local vendor and online applications.

SSIS is being used for data interchange. This includes using it for traditional ETL to a corporate data warehouse, as well as for the production or intake of flat files for interchange with external sources. Sources include traditional RDBMS, web services based cloud sources, and flat files. We are beginning the process of extending SSIS to the cloud in conjunction with Azure Data Factory.

In my department, we design and manage ETL processes. We use SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) to design a data warehouse. To create a data warehouse, we can make the stage layer and DWH layers with the SSIS ETL tool. We create data marts using aggregate functions in the SSIS ETL tool. In addition, we use the SSIS ETL tool to move data between databases.

We use SQL Server Integration Services to import data into and out of our main SQL server databases. This data comes from a variety of external sources and sometimes there is data format mismatch between source and destination. With an SSIS package, we can retain the mapping and data formats integrity from the source to the destination without having to go through the process every time.

The IT department at our organization uses SQL Server Integration Services. We use SSIS to perform extract, transform, and load (ETL) data operations. Our primary use is to move data from a source system or database, restructure the data to optimize it for reporting, and store it in a database instance used for reporting.

We use SSIS in a number or different use cases. 1. Traditional ETL for our data warehouse. 2. Automate reporting. We have a number of reports that go out to thousands of customers daily. We have implemented SSIS to run these. 3. Application integration. With SSIS we are able to quickly integrate from our order entry and operations software into our ERP and Financial software.

We are currently using SSIS packages on two major projects:
1. To populate our data warehouse. Running SSIS packages from the server on a 10-minute schedule, we extract, transform and load the data into the warehouse to support all internal reporting and provide data as a service to our global partners.
2. Bulk data import to our CRM system. Building packages to run on-demand to bulk import structured data to our CRM instance.

In the past, we have used SSIS packages to complete a one-time migration from a legacy CRM system to the current CRM.

Even though we are a smaller company, we use this huge army Swiss knife to accomplish a number of technical IT tasks. First and foremost we use it to integrate systems like MS CRM and SAP, constantly enhancing the data flow and making tasks easier to accomplish for the users. Secondly, I personally use it clean up data and maintaining my BI ETL scripts running out 12-year-old data warehouse for our analysis cube. The actual tool is currently only in use by the IT department by using Visual Studio (BIDS).
