Mastering SQL Server 2017
Leverage the power of SQL Server 2017 Integration Services to build data integration solutions with ease
Work with temporal tables to access information stored in a table at any time
Get familiar with the latest features in SQL Server 2017 Integration Services
Program and extend your packages to enhance their functionality
Microsoft SQL Server 2017 uses the power of R and Python for machine learning and containerization-based deployment on Windows and Linux. By learning how to use the features of SQL Server 2017 effectively, you can build scalable apps and easily perform data integration and transformation.
You'll start by brushing up on the features of SQL Server 2017. This Learning Path will then demonstrate how you can use Query Store, columnstore indexes, and In-Memory OLTP in your apps. You'll also learn to integrate Python code in SQL Server and graph database implementations for development and testing. Next, you'll get up to speed with designing and building SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) data warehouse packages using SQL server data tools. Toward the concluding chapters, you'll discover how to develop SSIS packages designed to maintain a data warehouse using the data flow and other control flow tasks.
By the end of this Learning Path, you'll be equipped with the skills you need to design efficient, high-performance database applications with confidence.
