We do a lot of consutancy work and we decided to introduce version control after one of our customers modified transformations beyond use. Version control helped us to restore project to it's original state. Another situation when version control is very usefull is a large project with multiple developers.

We have the following situation:
Imagine that you are working for large finance organization and would like to load the year end balances into SQL Server database. The excel file look like this.
So we create a simple SSIS package using Excel connector and Ole DB destination, before loading the data we hit preview button.
For some reason last 3 lines have null values, This is because our connection string has not got IMEX=1
Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\DEMO\Excel\mixed_data_types.xls;Extended Properties="EXCEL 8.0;HDR=YES";
We correct it
Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\DEMO\Excel\mixed_data_types.xls;Extended Properties="EXCEL 8.0;HDR=YES;IMEX=1";
That looks much better so we load the data. Later same day, the finance manager says that the balance is wrong you look at the data and there are some null values again.
