Installing SQL Server 2014 Data Tools

I noticed that SQL Server Data Tools (a.k.a. BIDS) was not listed under Shared Features on the SQL Server 2014 Developer DVD.

So where did it go?  With SQL Server 2014, there is a link on the Installation Center window under Tools.

On the Developer DVD, the link points to http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42313

The change is a positive one.  When BI Developers need to install Data Tools the download from Microsoft is available and there aren’t any concerns about installing more components that are needed to develop cubes and reports.
