Downloading? Simple. Uploading? A cinch. Moving files between folders? Easy enough when you're looking at it on the server, but what about making it a part of your  ETL? Or say you want to find a way to automate the process? Chances are, this may be an issue for even a seasoned SSIS developer, but thanks to some new functionality within Task Factory, the entire process is now easier than ever.

Learn More About This Feature


Aren't we all looking for ways to increase speed and efficiency with SSIS? Especially when it comes to our ETL projects. The Dimension Merge SCD and UPSERT Destination components within Task Factory from Pragmatic Works already do the heavy lifting for inserting and updating data, bringing an unparalleled speed increase to ETL executions and allowing us to tackle millions, if not billions, of items at a fraction of the speed of their native SSIS counterparts.
