The Business Intelligence option in missing in visual Studio. What I need to install to have this option??

I assume I need to install SQL server full package. But can we achieve the business intelligence through SQL server Express.


To get them in full Visual Studio, you can download and install the templates: http://www.microsoft.com/en-ie/download/details.aspx?id=36843

or with SQL Server Express you can install the advanced services which will include BI Dev Studio (a scaled down VS just for BI development): https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms365248(v=sql.105).aspx

(those links are examples, there are different versions of each for different versions of Visual Studio or SQL Server Express so you might have to search for those)
