This is an attemp to ge a overview of all the software and versions within the MS BI stack since 1999. Look at the first column to get the SQL Server version and look to the right on each row to see what has been added over time. My personal view is that it became hard to know each tool really good with the arrival of SQL Server 2005 and it became even harder when SharePoint came as the portal part. I have also tried to identify versions when there has beeen important Changes over SQL Server versions like SSIS in SQL Server 2012. Interesting is that the MS BI certification pays most attention to the SQL Server RDBMS with two exams. I agree that the TSQL part is important but not the other, administration in the context that a lot of BI software is not covered.
