Hi,

some basic articles:

To get a deeper understanding, you should have a look on the Kimball books:
The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit - Amazon

The Microsoft Data Warehouse Toolkit: With SQL Server 2008 R2 and the Microsoft Business Intelligence Toolset Amazon

Kimball's Data Warehouse Toolkit Classics: The Data Warehouse Toolkit, 2nd Edition; The Data Warehouse Lifecycle, 2nd Edition; The Data Warehouse ETL Toolkit Amazon

To really get to know SSIS, I'd recommend any of the books by Brian Knight.  I personally got started by reading Expert SQL Server 2005 Integration Services from start to finish, but that's a little outdated nowadays.  Unless you're not on 2012 yet, then it would still fall in the "interesting to read" category!

Use the Look Inside function on Amazon to decide if the book suits your purposes, that way you don't spend money to find out later that it doesn't contain what you'd expected.
