Sql Server Data tools – that you can use to create packages and jobs. This comes free with the sql server 2012 developer version.
If I just download the free Sql Server Management studio express
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.

thats the evaluation edition, if you have MSDN or the Technet subscription, you can download the Developer edition for free, that has all the features of Enterprise edition

So in that case if I don’t want to spend money for a technet subscription, then Sql Server Data tools is Not a free option? Correct?
