Evolution of an SSIS Framework
SSIS frameworks are the next logical step after SSIS design patterns because frameworks comprise many patterns. At a minimum, an SSIS framework should provide package execution control and monitoring. That sounds simple, but I assure you, it is not. Execution control requires a working knowledge of the Integration Services runtime API. Understanding the subtleties of tight—and loose—coupling is not merely helpful, it can make or ruin your day (or data integration solution).
