integration tool, backed by solid strategy. Using Microsoft SQL server integration services, XTIVIA can help you effectively and efficiently integrate both Microsoft and non-Microsoft data sources to extract, transform and load (ETL) data across your key business data constellations.

Assigning a dedicated Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services expert, XTIVIA will:

  • Review your data integration needs for optimal alignment with multiple data sources and primary ETL project needs

This will tie together your SSIS, SSAS and SSRS solutions for better responsiveness across multiple use cases.
