You can find BIDS features in SQL Server Data Tools for SQL Server 2012

The development environment for business intelligence (and database) solutions - earlier Business Intelligence Development Studio - is called SQL Server Data Tools in SQL Server 2012.
It can be installed using the SQL Server 2012 installation kit.

It's a Visual Studio 2010 Shell in Integrated Mode. Check out my earlier post regarding VS modes, BIDS, and SSMS.


  1. It is a good candidate for a meetup topic.

  2. Sure, as soon as we're finished with the SQL 2008 topics :)
