Control Flows are the backbone of an Integration Services package. They contain the procedural logic that dictates the flow of execution through a package, such as grapping files from a remote server, cleaning out tables in a staging server, validating the files, kicking off the data flows to get the data where it needs to go, and cleaning up afterwards. Each Integration Services Package contains a single logical control flow. That can be as simple a single task or as complex as you need it to be. The Control Flow manages everything that happens in an Integration Services package. In this course you’ll learn about the various elements in a control flow, including tasks, containers, and precedents constraints. Then you’ll learn how to add tasks and configure them using both common elements as well as the unique features of each task. Next the course explores some of the tasks that you likely to use most often with some demos of their capabilities. We’ll wrap things up with a look at precedents constraints with both determine the order at which tasks execute as well as how they define overall work flow of your Integration Services package.
