Overall Satisfaction with Visual Studio IDE

We use Visual Studio for our Business Intelligence needs - creating SSIS packages, SSRS Reports, and SSAS Cubes. Other departments use it for creating dynamic websites using JavaScript and HTML5.
  • SSIS is easy to implement and update.
  • Integration with TFS and GIT is easy.
  • The command line interface isn't very responsive.
  • Having to search for the missing SSRS tools menu is a pain.
  • It's made making changes a lot easier.
  • The tasks in SSIS are evolving and making it simpler to use.
There are so many places to look, it's sometimes confusing where to find the answer you're looking for.

Do you think Microsoft Visual Studio delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Microsoft Visual Studio's feature set?


Did Microsoft Visual Studio live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Microsoft Visual Studio go as expected?


Would you buy Microsoft Visual Studio again?


Works really well in a Microsoft stack shop. We use it for all of our business intelligence projects and some of the app/web projects.
