SSDT for Visual studio

Dear all,

As since SQL 2012 release MS introduce the SSDT for Visual Studio 2010/2012/2103, anything for DB managment and programabilty that SSDT can't do?

Why don't just simply do it via SSMS?

VS express 2010 + SSDT tools = Visual studio professional ?

this is totally legit. but SSDT also brings you features like Compare and Data Compare that SSMS cannot do. Each tools are complementing the other.

"VS express 2010 + SSDT tools = Visual studio professional ? "

but this one should not be correct, right?

"Integration into TFS "

so you mean VS professional has this one but not the express + SSDT ?

SSDT has to be installed on top of VS Pro as well. There used to be a comparison chart showing the features of express compared to other editions but can't find it anymore.

VS pro as integration to TFS but I am quite sure SSMS does not have it
