Right now I have a third party tool that takes the DTSX package, allows me to schedule it, and shows me a log of successful and non-successful launches. I'm looking to replace this tool with something other than importing the SSIS package into SQL Server and scheduling a job - business decision, not mine. Are there any suggestions out there of third party tools used by SQL Professionals?

I looked at Event Manager from SQLSentry and I'm not sold. It looks like an Outlook Calendar on Steroids. Does it actually allow me to schedule the job across multiple platforms, or just view jobs that are already scheduled. Does Red-Gate have anything?

You can use the Windows Scheduler.
About anything that can schedule a .exe suffices.

Personally I like SQL Agent the best, and you don't need to import your packages into SQL Server to use it (although it makes the most sense).
You can schedule packages stored on the file system using SQL Agent.

What’s the deal with Excel & SSIS?
