"The most valuable features are that is easy to install and it is user-friendly."
"The most valuable features of SSIS are that it works with the query language and it can import data from different sources."
"The script component is very powerful, things that you cannot normally do, is feasible through C#."
"It's something I needed for bulk imports. I'm not a big fan of it, but I haven't seen anything better."
"The main value of any Microsoft product is the ease of use. You can achieve more with less time. That's what's beneficial for me. With many competitors, you might need to spend more time coming up with a solution because you have to focus on taking care of the product."
"It's a competent product."
"The most valuable thing is that it is easy to connect with Microsoft tools. In Europe, particularly in France, a lot of companies use Excel, SQL Server, and other Microsoft tools, and it is easier to connect SSIS with Microsoft tools than other products."
"The interface is very user-friendly."
"Built in reports show package execution and messages. Logging can also be customized so only what is needed is logged. There is also an excellent logging replacement called BiXpress that provides both historical and real-time monitoring which is more efficient and much more robust than the built-in logging capabilities. And none of this requires custom coding to make it useful unlike many other ETL tools."
"Pricing is an area that needs improvement."
"It should have other programming languages supported as well from a scripting perspective. Currently, only C# and VB.NET are supported, which limits it to .NET. It should have Java support as well."
"It would be nice if you could run SSIS on other environments besides Windows."
"The security could be improved, as it is more important in our context."
"It's difficult to refactor SSIS. It gets cumbersome to reuse the solution."
"We purchase an add on called task factory primarily to allow bulk delete, update and upsert capability. I'd like to see this be part of the standard package."
"The solution could improve by having quicker release updates."
"Options for scaling could be improved."
"I would like to see more features in terms of the integration with Azure Data Factory."
