Where can I get the Business Intelligence Development tools for MS SQL 2012 server?

This is doing a eval on MS SQL 2012 server. I just got to know that BI development tools not
more available in SQL 2012, instead, it changes name to called Data Tools. I have setup MS SQL 2012 Enterprise edition, and doesn't seem to have an option to select for it. Does it mean that only 2012 Business Intelligence edition has this feature? Or else, how can I get to use it?

Thanks in advance.

I think you can try Sql Server 2012 Business Intelligence Edition instead
you can click on microsoft visual data instead of sql serve buisness inteligence tab  in earlier version

Do you mean that SQL Server Data Tools is not in the list of features to select?  That would be weird because Enterprise edition contains all features.

Have a look at the following on how to install it, perhaps that helps: http://blog.hoegaerden.be/2012/04/18/sql-server-data-tools-ssdt/
(the first screenshot shows you what checkbox should be checked)

Once installed, you should find the SQL Server Data Tools shortcut under the Microsoft SQL Server 2012 program group.  It displays a blueish infinity (fallen eight) icon.
