Great Indian Developer Awards - Visual Studio and Sharepoint

Folks, these awards excited me. Please see details below

Even us database folks use Visual Studio either in the form of SSDT (SQL Server Data tools) or BIDS (Business Intelligence Developer Studio)

Initially BIDS was used for development of Cubes and reports. Now SSDT is a single shell that can be used even to develop Database engine objects along with SSRS reports and Analytical models using Multidimensional and Tabular models. Please see details of using SSDT for development of objects in link below.

We use SharePoint as the collaboration medium for hosting most of Power Pivot, Power View, Excel extracts and even report builder
