** UPDATE 2 **

This post covers the specialisms in more detail:

http://www.jamesserra.com/archive/2012/03/sql-server-2012-new-certification-info/

In particular, the following details are key (Quoted from the above blog):

The seven exams for SQL Server 2012 are:

  • Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2012 (70-461) [BI and DP] (info) (course)
  • Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases (70-462) [BI and DP] (info) (course)
  • Implementing a Data Warehouse with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 (70-463) [BI and DP] (info) (course)
  • Developing Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases (70-464) [DP] (info) (course)
  • Designing Database Solutions for Microsoft SQL Server 2012 (70-465) [DP] (info)
  • Implementing Data Models and Reports with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 (70-466) [BI] (info) (course)
  • Designing Business Intelligence Solutions with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 (70-467) [BI] (info)

I have indicated which certification (“Business Intelligence” [BI] or “Data Platform” [DP]) each exam fits into).

So if you have the three MCITP certifications (Business Intelligence Developer, Database Administrator 2008, and Database Developer 2008) and want to get both the Business Intelligence certification and the Data Platform certification, you will need to take five of the seven exams (all but 70-461 and 70-462).
