Helpful information and examples on how to use SQL Server Integration Services.
Today we are releasing SQL Server Data Tools – Business Intelligence for Visual Studio 2012 (SSDT BI) templates. With SSDT BI for Visual Studio 2012 you can develop and deploy SQL Server Business intelligence projects. Projects created in Visual Studio 2010 can be opened in Visual Studio 2012 and the other way around without upgrading or downgrading – it just works.
The download/install is named to ensure you get the SSDT templates that contain the Business Intelligence projects. The setup for these tools is now available from the web and can be downloaded in multiple languages right here: http://www.microsoft.com/download/details.aspx?id=36843
The setup includes:
It will be installed as a new shared feature for SQL Server 2012 and can be uninstalled from there.
This download contains the same features as SQL Server 2012 SP1 and supports the themes introduced for Visual Studio 2012.
Some screenshots of the templates in Visual Studio 2012:
New project in Visual Studio 2012 black theme
Integration services project in Visual Studio 2012 dark theme
Multi-dimensional project in Visual Studio 2012 light theme
Tabular model project in Visual Studio 2012 dark theme
Reporting services project in Visual Studio 2012 light theme
Why is everything monochrome? Are we all expected to be color blind?
Finally the BI tooling aligned! Indeed happy developing! Thank you for the wonderful and fast advancements in the user experience!
(Could you please share some licensing details as well?)
Thanks! Will try it soon... looks indeed a little grey...
In the Dark theme, the button "View Report" in the report view is grey on grey background with white color - impossible to see.
I get mixed architecture failure. Friend of mine also got this. Even though it says both are supported?
Remember to “Perform a new installation of SQL Server 2012″ and not “Add features to an existing instance of SQL Server 2012″ or you will get a “same architecture installation” failed message.
I got error when building BI projects via devenv.exe command line. Does anyone else have similar issue?
Only available installation bits are x86-32, not x86-64 and it can't be used by us with 64-bit installations. Please fix.
New instance option worked. Works fine now.
this is great.
I just installed it.
do we have to purchase licensing for this?
