Import your ‘On-Prem’ Data to Azure SQL Data Warehouse by SSIS


We have already discussed many ways to import data in Azure DWH. Today I will discuss OLD SCHOOL approach of data import by SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS). In my opinion, this is the most promising way to import data from different data sets/ types like SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, Flat File, CSV, DB2 etc…


  • Azure Subscription.
  • Azure SQL Server and an Azure Data Warehouse Database
  • SQL Server Data Tools with SSIS installed
  • Visual Studio 2015 – Visual Studio 2013

Let’s Start,

FYI~,  I’m using  VS 2015


Go to File>New project and select Integration Services Project,


Add ‘Data Flow Task’ as shown below,


Double click in Data Flow Task, it will open Data Flow pane


Attendance Code Source is Data Flow Components


Give details of your Server and Table after Double Clicking Attendance Code Source,




You could click on the table to Preview Data,


Here I’m only inserting the New Rows at Lookup Editor,


At Destination Editor, You need to give Azure Data Warehouse Name at connection manager, You could find it after Login at your Azure Portal and Clicking at Azure Data Warehouse as highlighted below,




After this, click F5 or Run and Your SSIS package will execute.

Please note GREEN Color reflect successful run.


Hope this will be helpful, until next time happy coding!!
