What do you think of SSIS?

Sql Server Integration Services (SSIS) 2016 Review Summary SSIS 2016 - the Good the Bad, and the Ugly SSIS is a unique ETL tool for a number of reasons. Most shops already own it but may treat it as a one-off free utility rather than as an enterprise ETL tool even though it can compete with the best of ETL tools. Some of the lack of respect is due to immature beginnings in its former "DTS" days. And some of it is because it comes bundled with Sql Server and does not normally run (but can) on a separate ETL server.  It can't be good if its free right?  Especially when competitors easily charge 6 figures for  their tools. Don't we get what we pay for?  My answer is, generally yes but this may be an exception worth noting. SSIS has become extremely flexible, extensible...

What is most valuable?

The packaging and how it is organized is good for someone that really has never seen ETL before.

How has it helped my organization?

SSIS was easily adaptable to our group. It was cheaper than the other tools that we compared it to, however I feel that we got what we paid for.

What needs improvement?

Scalability of SSIS needs some improvement. Seems to get sluggish as soon as we hit a high volume of data.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

What do you think of SSIS?

What is our primary use case?: SSIS is a very flexible solution that allows data to be generated through code or external software. As a result, we can create reproducible patterns and improve code quality. • How has it helped my organization?: Because of the code generation, code quality improved and the time to develop decreased. This led to a quicker and more agile development phase. • What is most valuable?: It has the ability to be deployed into the cloud through Data Factory, and run completely as a software as a service in the cloud. • What needs improvement?: Metadata management. A change in the metadata source cripples the whole ETL process, requiring each module to be manually reopened. • For how long have I used the solution?: More than five years.

What is SSIS?

SSIS is a package is an organized collection of connections, control flow elements, data flow elements, event handlers, variables, parameters, and configurations, that you assemble using either the graphical design tools that SQL Server Integration Services provides, or build programmatically. You then save the completed package to SQL Server, the SSIS Package Store, or the file system, or you can deploy the ssISnoversion project to the SSIS server. The package is the unit of work that is retrieved, executed, and saved.
