Microsoft SQL Server 2016 is the biggest release upgrade in its history, with many new features to discover. From new performance tools to enhanced security, there's a lot to get excited about. But where do you start?

Fortunately, our experts are here to help.

We sat down with two of our SQL Server MVPs to talk about what features they're looking forward to the most, and why you should consider upgrading today.

  • What improvements did Microsoft focus on the most?
  • How should you approach an upgrade?
  • Are you being too cautious when it comes to upgrading?
  • What are the differences between on-premise and cloud with this release?

And of course, if you already know you want to upgrade, we’re here to help with that too.
