Develop SSIS like an expert in a fraction of the time from within Microsoft Visual Studio (BIDS). BIxPress arrives at a time when developers and DBA’s are replacing DTS with SSIS packages for SQL Server 2005 and 2008. The need to replace DTS is underscored by the end of mainstream support for SQL Server 2000. BIxPress was designed to help developers create dynamic SSIS packages in less time while reducing SSIS execution issues and production support cost over the long term.
