SSIS Term Extraction

Tim Mitchell takes us through term extraction in SQL Server Integration Services:

The SSIS term extraction component is a data flow transformation that will aggregate the frequency of words found in a specified column supplied by an upstream data source. This component expects a Unicode text or text stream field as an input, and calculates as an output the frequency of the nouns and/or noun phrases in the specified source column. As shown below on the data flow surface, the term extraction component (circled) is always used as a transformation, accepting exactly one input and expecting either one or two outputs (the second being an optional error output).

This is one component I’ve never used before.
