Description

So I have Visual Studio 2012 installed. I also have SSDT (November Update) installed. Yet I have no Business Intelligence tools. Yet, the BI tools are part of SSDT.

Are there two different "SSDTs"? Did I miss something? I'd love to have my BI tools in VS2012, not just some DBA tools.

In the SQL Server 2012 installer, developers can install SSIS/RS/AS tools for Visual Studio 2010 by selecting SSDT during installation.

In the web acquision experience, however, the SSDT shell only includes the database projects component. Installing SSDT from the web will not install SSIS/RS/AS tools.

No, you didn't miss anything. Microsoft did...

SSDT - What's in a name?

In other words, the SSDT name is used in different places to mean different things. Its a mess as you have realized, and you're not alone!
