Built in reports show package execution and messages. Logging can also be customized so only what is needed is logged.

And none of this requires custom coding to make it useful unlike many other ETL tools.This solution is easy to implement, has a wide variety of connectors, has support for Visual Basic, and supports the C language.The initial setup of this solution is very straightforward.The setup is straightforward. It's very easy to install.With this solution, there is the potential to expand, so that you can immediately write code onto the SQL server.The workflow features have been very valuable.

Cons

You have to write push down join & lookup SQL to the database yourself via stored procedures or use of the SQL Task to get very high performance. That said, this is a common complaint for nearly all ETL tools on the market and those that offer an alternative such as Informatica offer them at a very expensive add-on price.Tuning using this solution requires extensive expertise to improve performance.The performance of this solution is not as good as other tools in the market.Video training would be a helpful addition.The solution should work on the GPU, graphical processing unit. There should also be piping integration available.It needs more integration tools, so you can connect to different sources.There were some issues when we tried to connect it to data storage. It was a connection issue.I would also like to see full integration with our BI because then our full load of data will be available in our organization. They should incorporate an ATL process.
