Jamie Thompson on the Data Profiling Task

SSIS Junkie Jamie Thompson has once more made the rest of the SSIS community look lazy by posting a multi-part[1] series of blog posts on the new Data Profiling Task in the February CTP of SQL Server 2008. If you’re at all interested in data quality, definitely check it out:

I promise I was going to do this really soon[2] but since Jamie has done such an excellent job, I guess now I won’t need to be bothered. Thanks, Jamie!

[1] This was originally “five-part” but Jamie has since added two more. I don’t know if he’s done yet, so I’ll leave it as this.
[2] Boy, that’s weird – Blogger.com doesn’t support the new “blatant lie” HTML tag 😉
[3] Part 8 added on March 4

I work on Master Data Services and Data Quality Services, and have previously worked on SQL Server Integration Services. Although I work for Microsoft and will be posting on technical topics, I want to stress that this is a personal blog, and any opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. I built my career around SQL Server and Microsoft technologies for well over a decade before I joined Microsoft as an employee, and I plan on using this blog to share my personal experience and opinions. They may well be shaped by my experience on the SQL Server team, but they’re still mine, and not that of Microsoft, disclaimer, disclaimer, etc., etc..
