Overall Satisfaction with Task Factory

Task Factory is used to support our SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) needs. SSIS has many tasks built in but we have found they fall short of our needs and Task Factory fills that gap for us. The components provided are well designed and easy to configure for the package to use and allow parameters to be configured for ease of use across environments.
  • The SFTP task is particularly helpful with proxy capabilities and setup with environment variables.
  • The RestAPI task is something new that we have found helpful now.
  • The latest UpSert task has also been a great addition.
  • I thought it needed to improve the UpSert task to include delete capabilities but was informed it is present. Just might be useful to be more apparent to an infrequent user.
  • Having to only license production and not our development laptops makes it possible.
  • Cost is always an impact, and Task Factory has kept the cost within reach for smaller environments like us.
One task we use with every package is the Advanced Email task, although simple and used primarily for our monitoring of package success, it is helpful and simple to use. Only downside as with any product is it does require some maintenance and has had the occasional blip of an update breaking an existing functionality.

Task Factory Business Processes

  • We use the Advanced email and SMS Task to alert us with package results, Pass or Fail
  • Making great use of the Upsert Destination task, requiring far less development over previous methods used.
  • Most recently find the SharePoint Destination to be a useful and simple task to use.
  • Price
  • Product Features
The capabilities Task Factory provides help simplify and reduce time to develop our projects. This is a major decision factor to add Task Factory over using the built-in components. Ease of configuration of the tasks, and of course that a single task meets the need versus multiple components without the product.
