You can use XML configuration file to change the connection, this saves the SSIS configuration in an XML files, later you can edit this xml file to change various parameters.

Right click on package designer, choose "Package Configuration and Organizer"
Click Add, this will open up a wizard, Click next.
In Select configuration type window, choose" XML Configuration file" as your "configuration type". Specify a location to save this configuration file in "Configuration File Name" and click next
In "Select Properties to Export Window", expand "Connection Managers", Choose Servername, (initialCatloge, only if you need to edit database as well) in both source and destination and click next button.
Specify a name for this configuration and click finish to complete the wizard

Check the XML configuration file created above, you can customize the connection by editing this config file.
