You are reviewing the design of an existing fact table named factSales, which is loaded from a SQL Azure database by a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) package each day.
The fact table has approximately 1 billion rows and is dimensioned by product, sales date, and sales time of day.

The database administrator is concerned about the growth of the database. Users report poor reporting performance against this database. Reporting requirements have recently changed and the only remaining report that uses this fact table reports sales by product name, sale month, and sale year. No other reports will be created against this table.
You need to reduce the report processing time and minimize the growth of the database.

You are designing a data warehouse for a software distribution business that stores sales by software title. It stores sales targets by software category. Software titles are classified into subcategories and categories. Each software title is included in only a single software subcategory, and each subcategory is included in only a single category.
The data warehouse will be a data source for an Analysis Services cube.
The data warehouse contains two fact tables:
– factSales, used to record daily sales by software title
– factTarget, used to record the monthly sales targets by software category
Reports must be developed against the warehouse that reports sales by software title, category and subcategory, and sales targets.
You need to design the software title dimension. The solution should use as few tables as possible while supporting all the requirements.
What should you do?

Create two tables, dimSoftware and dimSoftwareCategory. Connect factSales to dimSoftware and fact Target to dimSoftwareCategory with foreign key constraints. Direct the cube developer to use key granularity attributes.
You are designing a data warehouse hosted on SQL Azure. The data warehouse currently includes the dimUser and dimDistrict dimension tables and the factSales fact table. The dimUser table contains records for each user permitted to run reports against the warehouse; and the dimDistrict table contains information about sales districts. The system is accessed by users from certain districts, as well as by area supervisors and users from the corporate headquarters.
You need to design a table structure to ensure that certain users can see sales data for only certain districts. Some users must be permitted to see sales data from multiple districts.
What should you do?
Add a district column to the dimUser table.
Partition the factSales table on the district column.
Create a userDistrict table that contains primary key columns from the dimUser and dimDistrict tables.
For each district, create a view of the factSales table that includes a WHERE clause for the district.
You are developing a data flow transformation to merge two data sources. One source contains product data and the other source contains data about the country in which the product was manufactured. Both data sources contain a two-character CountryCode column and both use SQL Server. Both data sources contain an ORDER BY clause to sort the data by the CountryCode column in ascending order.
You use a Merge Join transformation to join the data.

You need to ensure that the Merge Join transformation works correctly without additional transformations.
What should you do?
(Each answer presents a part of the solution. Choose all that apply.)

You develop a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) package that imports SQL Azure data into a data warehouse every night. The SQL Azure data contains many misspellings and variations of abbreviations. To import the data, a developer used the Fuzzy Lookup transformation to choose the closest-matching string from a reference table of allowed values. The number of rows in the reference table is very large. If no acceptable match is found, the Fuzzy Lookup transformation passes a null value. The current setting for the Fuzzy Lookup similarity threshold is 0.50. Many values are incorrectly matched.
You need to ensure that more accurate matches are made by the Fuzzy Lookup transformation without degrading performance.
What should you do?
Change the Exhaustive property to True,
Change the similarity threshold to 0.55.

You are developing a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) package to implement an incremental data load strategy. The package reads rows from a source system and compares them to rows in a destination system. New rows will be inserted and changed rows will be updated. You have used a Lookup transformation and a Conditional Split transformation. The Lookup transformation joins the source and destination table on the business key, and includes all columns from the destination table in the data flow output. The Conditional Split transformation inspects the destination columns and directs data flow to either insert new records or update existing records. You need to configure the Lookup transformation to ensure that all records flow to the Conditional Split transformation, regardless of whether the rows match an existing row in the destination table.

Ignore Failure
Redirect rows to error output
Fail component
Redirect rows to no match output

Your team is creating SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) packages that have several dependencies. The packages use parameters for configuration purposes. Your company’s IT policies include the following change control requirements:

After a package is ready for deployment, your team must hand over the process to junior IT personnel.
The process must guarantee that when a package has been validated, that same package (and all its dependencies) is deployed to production.
The process must be repeatable and reliable and must be executed with the least administrative and training effort by junior IT personnel.

You need to use the most appropriate deployment unit to satisfy the company policies, while minimizing issues such as incorrect version or configuration. Which type of deployment unit should you use?
dtsx
SSISdeploymentmanifest
msi
ispac
You are developing a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) project by using the Project Deployment Model. The project is deployed to a single SSIS catalog, and transfers data to and from multiple databases hosted on SQL Server. The project must be configured to be able to export data to and from five different production servers that run SQL Server 2012. Each target server requires different values for connection strings and parameters in the SSIS project. You need to meet the requirements by using the least amount of administrative effort. What should you do?
For each target server, create separate registry entry configurations. Select the registry entry at package execution time.
For each target server, create separate Environments in the SSIS catalog of the host SQL Server SSIS instance. Select the appropriate Environment at package execution time.
Create one SSIS catalog Environment. Change the values of each Environment variable at package execution time.
For each target server, create a separate XML configuration file. Select the XML configuration file at package execution time.
You are developing a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) package to implement an incremental data load strategy. The package reads data from a source system. Depending on the value in a source column, the package redirects rows to one of five different data flow paths. You need to add a data flow transformation to support the package redirection. Which data flow transformation should you use?
Conditional Split
pjvot
Multicast
Lookup
