Business Intelligence Development Studio - BIDS in SQL Server 2012

BIDS in SQL Server 2012


If  you are wondering 'where is Business Intelligence Development Studio - BIDS for  SQL Server 2012 after installing SQL Server 2012, you may not find it.


You won't find BIDS in Sql Server 2012 because it has been replaced by SQL Server Data Tools which uses core of Visual Studio 2010  and has has Report Builder and Report Designer built into Visual Studio 2010.


The Color of the IDE is now changed when compared to BIDS in SQL Server 2008, It looks more of a Visual Studio 2010 since its built on top of it.


You still will have  the same functionality in SQL Server Data Tools similar to that of BIDS in SQL Server 2008 with new features added in SQL Server 2012


This is how SQL Server Data Tools IDE looks when you click on SQL Server Data Tools in start menu ( It uses Visual Studio 2010 IDE)





























Once you open the SQL Server Data Tools IDE and click on new project, you see the same new project dialog similar to what we had in BIDS 2008.























SQL Server Data Tools IDE now looks sharper when compared to BIDS 2008 as below.
