The Premium Derived Column component expands on the native SSIS Derived Column to give developers more power in SSIS to easily perform advanced transformations without any custom scrips.

The Premium Derived Column component part of the SSIS Productivity Pack offers all the functionality of the SSIS out-of-box Derived Column component and expands on it to create a component with greater potentials, features, and ease-of use. The Premium Derived Column component is the ultimate component for SSIS developers. With over 200 functions, the Premium Derived Column component allows developers to create advanced expressions easily for SSIS transformations not once possible without custom scripts.
