First, we'll cover the basics of the Windows Workflow Foundation, the workflow runtime, the workflow designer, business rules, versioning, dynamic workflow (xoml) vs compiled workflows.

    Main Session Title: DTS to SSIS Conversion: What Are Your Options?
    Speaker: Mike Davis Company: Pragmatic Works
    Abstract: Microsoft's "End of Life" policy for SQL 2000 has encouraged organizations to seriously look at migrating their SQL2000 servers to SQL2005 or 2008. One of the biggest obstacles to a rapid migration is the Data Transformation Service (DTS) package issue. As we all know the conversion is not straightforward. SSIS is more powerful and significantly different from DTS. Join us as Mike Davis shares his knowledge about: Why you should upgrade from DTS to Integration Services Advantages of SSIS over DTS Options for converting DTS packages to native SSIS Adding value to packages during the conversion process Assessing the scope of a DTS conversion project (time, costs) See a demo of DTS xChange , a tool used to convert DTS packages
