I have a solution I have implemented with the demo version of SQL 2008 and would like to know the licenses required for it. I am running SQL querys from the 2008 server which reaches out to 40 remote sites and querys the DB using SSIS. I was trying to find out which SQL license I need. I was told the 2008 standard has integrated services but want to verify

Standard edition is correct - you don't need any kind of special license to query remote servers, and SSIS is included with every SQL Server license at any level.

The only think you'll have to make sure of is Server/CAL vs Processor. If your server is accessed by only named users, not anonymously, you can get a Server license and a CAL for each user. If your users connect anonymously (like from a website), or you don't want to buy CALs for each one, you'll need a processor license.
