BI templates in Visual Studio 2012–SSDT BI tools

If you have used new Visual Studio 2012 then you know that it is missing one of very useful “feature” for SQL Server guys. That was BI templates for different projects of SSRS, SSIS and SSAS. And it as one of the main reasons for me not moving completely to VS 2012. But few weeks back MSFT released sort of update for Visual Studio 2012… it is called SSDT BI tools (SQL Server Data Tools – Business Intelligence for Visual Studio 2012).

This is about 800 MB download and once installed it will add BI project templates in VS 2012.

BI Templates

Still I am going to hold on to VS 2010 and VS 2008 for my regular usage because VS 2012 still lacks ease of usage (and why the hack MSFT has changed key assignments in 2012 Annoyed ?)

That’s it for now …

It’s Just A Thought … Peace
