Drop the columnstore index.
Reporting from a Star schema is simpler than reporting from a normalized online transactional processing (OLTP) schema.
What are the reasons for wanting simpler reporting? (Choose all that apply.)
A Star schema typically has fewer tables than a normalized schema. Therefore, queries are simpler because they require fewer joins.
A Star schema has better support for numeric data types than a normalized relational schema; therefore, it is easier to create aggregates.
There are specific Transact-SQL expressions that deal with Star schemas.
A Star schema is standardized and narrative; you can find the information you need for a report quickly.

Some of the data your company processes is sent in from partners via email. How would you configure an SMTP connection manager to extract files from email messages?
In the SMTP connection manager, configure the OperationMode setting to Send And Receive.
It is not possible to use the SMTP connection manager in this way, because it can only be used by SSIS to send email messages.
The SMTP connection manager supports sending and receiving email messages by default, so no additional configuration is necessary.
It is not possible to use the SMTP connection manager for this; use the IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) connection manager instead.

In your SSIS solution, you need to load a large set of rows into the database as quickly as possible. The rows are stored in a delimited text file, and only one source column needs its data type converted from String (used by the source column) to Decimal (used by the destination column).
What control flow task would be most suitable for this operation?
The File System task would be perfect in this case, because it can read data from files and can be configured to handle data type conversions.
The Bulk Insert task would be the most appropriate, because it is the quickest and can handle data type conversions.
The data flow task would have to be used, because the data needs to be transformed before it can be loaded into the table.
No single control flow task can be used for this operation, because the data needs to be extracted from the source file, transformed, and then loaded into the destination table. At least three different tasks would have to be used–the Bulk Insert task to load the data into a staging database, a Data Conversion task to convert the data appropriately, and finally, an Execute SQL task to merge the transformed data with existing destination data.
A part of your data consolidation process involves extracting data from Excel workbooks.
Occasionally, the data contains errors that cannot be corrected automatically.
How can you handle this problem by using SSIS?
Redirect the failed data flow task to an External Process task, open the problematic Excel file in Excel, and prompt the user to correct the file before continuing the data consolidation process.
Redirect the failed data flow task to a File System task that moves the erroneous file to a dedicated location where an information worker can correct it later.
If the error cannot be corrected automatically, there is no way for SSIS to continue with the automated data consolidation process.
None of the answers above are correct. Due to Excel’s strict data validation rules, an Excel file cannot ever contain erroneous data.
In your ETL process, there are three external processes that need to be executed in sequence, but you do not want to stop execution if any of them fails. Can this be achieved by using precedence constraints? If so, which precedence constraints can be used?
( I believe the answer to this one is incorrect, however it was the chosen answer )
No, this cannot be achieved just by using precedence constraints.
Yes, this can be achieved by using completion precedence constraints between the first and the second and between the second and the third Execute Process tasks, and by using a success precedence constraint between the third Execute Process task and the following task.
Yes, this can be achieved by using completion precedence constraints between the first and the second, between the second and the third, and between the third Execute Process task and the following task.
Yes, this can be achieved by using failure precedence constraints between the first and the second, and between the second and the third Execute Process tasks, and by using a completion precedence constraint between the third Execute Process task and the following task.
