Currently working on a project to import data from one platform to another using SSIS 2008. This video helped me to get started with SSIS 2008.
The video outlines the basic steps to follow to create a package using SSIS using control flow and data flow.
Using SSIS on 64 bit plaform but the development tools are available (BIDS) only in 32 bit. So if you need to test the packages using 32 bit in the development and target it to 64 bit environment so that they can be executed on 64 bit platform.
