Improved Description about Transformations in SSIS Toolbox in BIDS in Denali CTP1 – Usability Enhancements in BIDS-SSIS in SQL Server code-named Denali – Part 3
Here is another very useful usability enhancement in SSIS Toolbox in Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) in the CTP1 release of SQL Server code-named Denali. The information/description about the transformations in the newly introduced SSIS Toolbox has been greatly improved by providing following three pieces of information (wherever applicable):
Functionality of Transformation
An Example of the Functionality [Wherever Applicable]
Recommendation [Wherever Applicable]
The following are some of the screenshots which provide a comparison of the information/description about Tasks/Transformations between current version of SQL Server (SQL Server 2008 R2 at the time of writing this article) and Denali CTP1.
This feature is very helpful for those who are new to the tool and start learning the tool on their own, Especially the Recommendation piece of information which will help the developer to use the task cautiously and look for any other alternatives if needed.
