SSIS: WorkFlow Vs. DataFlow

Part of Microsoft Integration Services

ssis SSIS: WorkFlow Vs. DataFlowSSIS: Fundamentals

Welcome to this first part of SSIS videos. With SSIS the first thing you need to understand in the basic concept of what “Work Flow” and “Data Flow” are.

What are Flows in SSIS?

Flows are how the data follows a specific path.  In SSIS there are two distinct areas:

  1. Work Flows
    Simply put, these are your logic gates.  Once you have done one thing, what do you want to do next in the package?  Also, what if one fo the steps failed what do you want to do now?
  2. Data Flows
    These control the data itself.  Here, anything goes!  You could split the data into a thousand parts, merge information together, import or export information.  Hey why not do all of these at the same time?  Data flows are very flexible.

This video will discuss the differences at a basic level ready for some more challenging options later. This video will also explain how to export information from a database to an Excel file. As already mentioned this is quite basic just to warm you up for the cool stuff!

This video is one of many SSIS tutorials on this site click here for more
