Introducing Mist 3.0
Written by Varigence Blog on 11.8.2012
Now With Zero-Commitment
Varigence is proud to announce Mist 3.0, a major update to our IDE for Business Intelligence development.
Use Mist to model and generate SSIS packages, SSAS cubes, and other BI assets using Business Intelligence Markup Language Language (Biml). Alternatively, you can leverage Mist designers for creating and modifying your BI assets. Further, Mist can import already made SSIS packages, allowing you to continue their development directly with Biml.
Mist also incorporates BimlScript, which lets you codify Biml creation with reusable templates and transformers. BimlScript makes it trivial to apply changes across several BI assets and enforce design patterns.
New features in Mist 3.0 include:
- Full support for SSIS 2012.
- A redesigned Project View that will be familiar to Visual Studio and BIDS users.
- Biml assets are now built with MSBuild, enabling custom build scenarios.
- You can now purchase a perpetual or subscription license. Subscription licenses are renewed every 30 days with no long term commitment required.
