SQL Server 2005 is approaching the end of its support on April 12, 2016. With end of support, security updates and hotfixes are no longer available from Microsoft. So there’s never been a better time to upgrade and benefit from the dramatic performance gains, higher availability and scalability and rich BI capabilities SQL Server 2014 has to offer.
Below is a summary of some of the new capabilities that are available in SQL Server 2014 since SQL Server 2005. If you do come across any vendor applications that do not support SQL Server 2014 please leave a comment and we can work with them to help certify their application with SQL Server 2014.
