SQL Server 2016

SQL Server 2016 was announced in Summer 2015 and CTP is available since then. It comes with some really cool features; JSON support, Polybase and Temporal Tables are some of my favorites. SSRS has seen some much needed face-lift. In all honesty, the UI for SSRS was getting a bit oldish. HTML rendering and Datazen integration are also welcoming improvements. The ability to deploy Power BI desktop reports to SSRS 2016, is also on road map. A very welcome news for organizations who aren’t using Power BI (as in cloud version) yet.

With that in mind, I have created a following presentation (or shall it call sway) which shows all the features I am looking forward to and msdn link for more information. Hope you find it useful too.

Please note that this is not an extensive list of features; they are the features I am interested in.
