As now a days, sharepoint has become very propular and is widely used. And people come acorss the requirements to make share point communicate with SQL server; to & fro. And there may be need to load data from share point applications to some database and vice versa; without much of extra coding efforts.
In other words we may want to access data of share point application to manipulate/operate on, which can be in some other formats other that simple database tables like lists/docs etc.
I found a very nice & simple aritcle which manages to access the list data of sharepoint Lists using SSIS, so that we can do whatever operations we want to do with those data in SSIS by using in built SSIS features like transformations etc.
