Sql Server Data tools – that you can use to create packages and jobs. This comes free with the sql server 2012 developer version.
QUESTION -
If I just download the free Sql Server Management studio express
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29062
Do you get the data tools with it as free as well? Is the data tools free to use like express version?

Currently I have sql server 2012 developer version that will expire soon. So trying to understand my options….when it comes to keep using the data tools for package creation and SSIS means.
