Featured Presentation

Data Profiling and a Data Profiling Repository with Microsoft tools

Speaker: Julie Smith, Consultant Innovative Architects

Summary: The SSIS Data Profiler Task contains great functionality, but originally was not very flexible nor dynamically configurable. Worse, it outputs to xml files only. In this session I will demonstrate an SSIS solution which uses dynamic expressions to flexibly configure what is profiled. The solution also writes to a custom database instead of xml, enabling trending, auditing and reporting. I will also explore data profiling available through Azure Machine Learning. The solution will be made available to attendees. Session Level: Intermediate

She's implemented increasingly complex Business Intelligence solutions for over a decade at various organizations.
