The use of raw files as SSIS data source is highly recommended for huge volume of data due to its superior read/write performance. Raw files store data in a very basic format that requires almost zero translation and parsing. This enables faster data reads/writes when compared to Flat Files and even faster than Database tables.

Credit Card Number Validator (CCNV) is a Custom SSIS Data Flow Transformation Component that determines whether the given input is a valid credit card number or not. CCNV takes String/Numeric input and performs a Synchronous, Non-Blocking transformation using Luhn Mod 10 algorithm and validates whether the input is a valid credit card number or not. The output is true if the input is a valid credit card number and false otherwise. CCNV08 is compatible with SQL Server 2008 while CCNV05 is compatible with SQL Server 2005. Contnue Reading
Custom SSIS Components consists of Design-time methods and Run-time methods. Debugging a Design-time method is different from a Run-time method. This post explains the techniques to debug Design-time and Run-time methods using the Custom Data Flow Component, Credit Card Number Validator as an example.
This post explains a SSIS technique that transforms large volume of data in shorter time by using Raw Files. Continue Reading …
