After my first day of SSIS training my boss walked into the office and said to me, "how was the first day of class". To which I responded, "great!" Then asked me, "so what is the difference between the control flow and data flow?" This posed a simple, but foundational concept, of SSIS. There are a few key things to remember when talking about the differences between control flow and data flow, and not just the completely obvious statement: data flow deals with data. Hopefully if you are beginning in SSIS there will be something in the information below that will help you understand the differences just a little bit better.
Thanks a lot. These differences helped me to understand much better.
