One of the common issues encountered with SSIS is deploying configurations for multiple environments. During this session, 2 patterns for handling configurations in SSIS will be covered. a simple pattern that handles most cases, to a very flexible pattern that covers most complex scenarios. Learning and using these patterns will allow SSIS developers to more easily deploy packages between environments, and leverage a single point of configuration in each environment.
