Working with Other SQL Server Features
Microsoft SQL Server provides robust interoperability among SQL Server features. The Integration Services includes a suite of tasks, data flow components, and connection managers that are specifically designed to support the integration of the SQL Server database, data mining, and online analytical processing (OLAP) in Integration Services solutions. For example, in an Integration Services package you can apply in-line business intelligence to the data that the package processes by running a data mining query. Depending on the query results, you can then load and process Analysis Services dimensions, perform other data maintenance tasks, or run SQL statements that create or truncate the tables before the package loads the tables with data.
