Hi folks,

Today I face a question regarding usage of OLE DB VS.
ADO.NET Connection managers in SSIS, there are some blog posts about difference
between connection providers and speed and performance of them. So I thought
that this will be helpful if I list different Control Flow Tasks and Data Flow
Components in SSIS that supports each connection manager.

There are some tasks and components that only supports one
of connection managers and there are few that supports all of them.

This comparison made on SSIS 2012:
