The Ultimate Comparison of ADO.NET and Entity Framework

When developers start working on any applications (for both web or desktop versions), they spend a long time worrying about the backend database, its tables, and their relationships, stored procedures, views, etc. Along with this, they also need to consider the data schema which will return from the backend part for the application.

SSIS Execute Process Task Tutorial with Examples

What’s the big deal with SSIS Execute Process Task?

Among the many SSIS components, Data Flow and SQL tasks are enough for simple tasks. Using SSIS to compare two tables is one example. But sometimes, those task components alone are not enough for our requirements. Executing a batch file, a PowerShell script, or an executable file as the next step makes sense. So, why not make use of it in SSIS?
