SQL Server Data Tools and SQL Server Business Intelligence (SSDT-BI)

25 shares Comment

SQL Server Data Tools - Business Intelligence (SSDT-bi) for Visual Studio 2012 includes BI project authoring tools and project templates for: --> SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) --> SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) --> SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) The tools and templates integrate into a Visual Studio 2012 shell that is also installed. The previous generations of this toolset was known as SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS). SSDT-BI, like BIDs leverages the Visual Studio Shell for the common design environment where the BI templates can be used. NOTE: The SSDT “BI” version is different than the standard SSDT version, which does NOT include the BI templates. The following is a bit of the history: --> SQL Server 2008R2 -- last version to ship BIDS included with SQL Server --> SQL Server 2012 -- included SSDT, which included the BIDS functionality for BI --> Post SQL Server 2012, a separate download -- "Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Data Tools - Business Intelligence for Visual Studio 2012" and "Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Data Tools for Visual Studio 2012" --> SQL Server 2014, SSDT is not included but a separate download --> "Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Data Tools - Business Intelligence for Visual Studio 2012"
