i've used Advanced installer before:
Depends on what packages you want to create. If you have existing installations as setup.exe and you want to wrap them into MSI in order to deploy, it's one thing; if you create your own software and you want to create MSI installations of it, it's another thing, heavily depending on the level of sophistication of your software. The most capable msi-authoring packages provide ton of possibilities and cost thousands of dollars.

If this is the former, maybe you don't need it at all - SCCM allows you to deploy setup.exe. Here's one tutorial:
