I'm trying to find a good data validation tool for my SSIS packages, that is, I need some validation tool that can check if the data in the source system are correct compared to my OLAP DB after each exectution of the SSIS package ?

Can anyone recommend a good tool to do that?

<<I need some validation tool that can check if the data in the source system are correct compared to my OLAP DB after each exectution of the SSIS package >>

"data in the source system" must be always correct as the OLAP dabatase should be always populated from OLTP database and not viceversa. Also in my opinion whatever SSIS you run to populate your OLAP db should only READ source OLTP database and not alter it for any reason.
