Stage Updates and Inserts for SSIS Data Flow Performance

A few days ago, I streamed SSIS Data Flow Performance, which you can view below (from LinkedIn) or by clicking the link to the YouTube recording:

I share similar SSIS Design Patterns in my Expert SSIS course. I next deliver Expert SSIS 14-15 Dec 2020. Also, Expert SSIS is on sale for 50% off as part of my Cyber Monday Sale at the time of this writing. If you are interested in saving even more while getting more training, I highly recommend my Live ADF and SSIS Class Season Pass – on sale for 67% off. Grab a Season Pass and attend all of my live SSIS and ADF training for a full year!


Incremental Loads 101

Incremental loads are not new, they’ve been around for a while now. In my course titled From Zero to SSIS, students design and build a simple incremental load design pattern on day one – and then build a robust incremental loader on day two. In the simple incremental loader design pattern, students tune the Data Flow by replacing an OLE DB Command with an OLE DB Destination aimed at a StageUpdates table – similar to the StageSalesUpdates table in this video.

Have a look – it’s a cool performance pattern.


I love helping people learn better SSIS Design Patterns!

Enterprise Data & Analytics

Enterprise Data & Analytics offers comprehensive Data Warehouse, ETL, SSIS, and Azure Data Factory knowledge to your enterprise. We engage in three phases:

  1. Training – we offer experience-based training, sharing knowledge from experience with one person wearing all the hats to leading dozens of developers on enterprise teams.
  2. Partnering – our team members join your enterprise team members at the developer and developer manager levels to shepherd (freshly-trained) team members as we – together – apply data integration patterns to your enterprise data.
  3. Sustaining – after the code is implemented, tested, documented, and signed-off; our team members stand ready to support your enterprise in the event of a disaster, re-join your team to jumpstart the next version, or merely to answer a question.
