Dimension Merge SCD Transform

 

Task Factory Dimension Merge SCD Transform

Dimension Merge SCD is a powerful replacement for the native slowly changing dimension (SCD) wizard in SSIS. This component includes a much more in depth interface than the standard SCD wizard and does not need the OLE DB Command transform. The component loads the data in memory for a much faster response and scalability. Experience a dimension load of up to 700 times faster than native SSIS SCD components.

The transform uses the Kimball methodology to load a slowly changing dimension in SSIS much faster than the built-in components for SSIS. Traditionally in SSIS, this is a row-by-row operation! The transform also gives you fine-grain customizability as a developer, letting you solve nearly any business problem.

Feature Highlights

  • Load a dimension up to 700x faster in SSIS since it's not a row-by-row operation
  • Handles Type 0, 1 and 2 dimension column types
  • Detailed audit trails and performance logs
  • Scales to dimensions with billions of rows

"At the University of Calgary, I can say with confidence that halfway into the conversion effort, using Task Factory has been one of our smartest and most cost-effective software acquisitions in recent memory."
