Yesterday we released SQL Server Data Tools – Business Intelligence for Visual Studio 2013 (SSDT BI) for SQL Server 2014.  With this release you can use SSDT BI in Visual Studio 2013 and it includes the Visual Studio Project Templates for Analysis Services, Integration Services, and Reporting Services.  The project templates in this release generally work with down level versions of the server (with the exception of SSIS).  See the image below for details. 

We have also retired the CTP version that was based on VS 2012.

SSDT-BI for Visual Studio 2013 has been re-released in English. It can be downloaded from: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42313.


  • Any news on this?

  • Any update on this?  Is anyone even reading this stuff?  "A few more days" is now approaching a month.

  • We have had some technical delays but we’re still  actively working on it.

  • Please can MS communicate an accurate time for this?  A few days != 5 weeks !  Basic courtesy kindly requested :)

  • I am hopeful that they are taking the time to complete the SSIS 2012,2008 compatibility...

  • An update would be good as we are having package problems using SQL 2014 when running with BIDS/VS 2012 as SQL 2014 holds them in package version 8 which you cant open in BIDS/VS 2012 as that does not allow a version greater than 6.

  • It has been more than a month now. The VS team even had time to ship VS 2013 update 2.

    Why is SSDT-BI taking so long?  

  • We apologize for the delay and the inconvenience to all of you. We are working round-the-clock on this and aim to release it in the next week or two.

  • Any news on this? SQL 2014 has been out for a while already so my expectation is that these tools should have been released by now?

  • Status update?  It's been over a month.  Generally, a few days < a month.  Thoughts?

  • This is ridiculous. Between this SSDT-BI screw up and the SharePoint 2013 SP1 recall mess my confidence in Microsoft and their enterprise products is at an all time low.

    I hope the SSDT-BI Program/Project Manager and Lead Developer are held accounted for the poor service and support they are providing their SQL Enterprise customers.

  • Hmmmm....   "aim to release it in the next week or two." ???

    Let's see... "a few more days" turned into a month.   That means " next week or two" should equal about 5 months?

    Come on, SSDT-BI team.   This is unfortunately not the first time the BI tools have lagged behind SQL and VS releases.   Can you please do what it takes to get tooling releases coordinated in the future?   And if not, maybe work on better communication with your customers?   Maybe ask the VS / Azure teams for some advice.   They seem to be doing things right these days.

  • I only have Visual Studio 2013 and need to build SSRS 2012 reports. How long are we going to have to wait? Is there any place to get the version that was recalled?

  • Could we shoot for Q2 2015?  Kidding

  • Seems the blog comments are just as easy for them to ignore as all the bugs and feedback submitted on connect...
