Microsoft Build 2022 Announcements
While we continue to review the new features of the CTP preview of SQL Server 2022, we turn our attention to the recent Microsoft Build conference and talk about some of the announcements made. We try to separate the interesting technology from the marketing fluff and what pieces might trickle into the data platform space. Defining your requirements has never been more important as the number of offerings continue to increase. We were super excited to hear about Microsoft Intelligent Data Platform; however, a little digging into the technology makes us realize we aren’t quite ready to pay for that service tier.
