My first response was – and I quote – “WOO HOO!” It’s good to see SSIS getting some love.
A couple years ago, someone claimed SSIS was dying. I first checked it out. Then I blogged about it in a post titled SSIS is Not Dead (Or Dying). It’s been a couple years and SSIS is not dead. One could say SSIS functionality being added to Azure Synapse, arguably Azure’s flagship offering, appears to be the opposite of dying.
I’m not sure I’m as sanguine as Andy is about the future of SSIS but I will say at the very least I agree that it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
