I am trying to creat an ssis package that compares 2 data sets and updates the 2nd data set to match the first.  Anytime there is a change to data set #2 send and email notification with the results.  I have done a little bit with integration services in the past and have gotten the send mail with results from the query to work fine but I want to add few other steps and lessen the email by only sending when the data has changed. I am attaching a small flow diagram of what I am looking for.  Please let me know what compents to use while creating the ssis.

Did you considered Trigger(s) for this matter instead of SSIS? At the end, your Data sits in SQL database tables and that's where you could trace the "change" in real time by using INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE triggers to do whatever comparison you need then send email or any other action.

I will look into the triggers but I dont know how it will work with 2 different databases.  I am running a query against our main sap db to get a data set ( any orders that are past due that we have stock on ) Initially i put this into a seperate table then rerun the query comparing results.  I want this to run every 30 minutes and send an email anytime new stock is added for a past due order or a new order goes past due that we have stock for.  I will look into triggers and see what I find but any help is appreciated.

"Initially i put this into a seperate table then rerun the query comparing results."

Are these two tables on the same SQL server in the same or separate DB's?
Im my opinion if you went this far already you could have a SQL Stored proc to compare the "seperate table" versus the "other" table or whatever data set (view?) you mean and if different send an email. Its easy to do all these from SQL code inside a stored proc - right?
Then all you need is a scheduled job to run every 30 minutes or so to
1. truncate/populate that "seperate table " from SAP db.
2. run this SQL stored proc to compare the 2 data sets and if different send the email.
