SQL PASS Summit Keynote

THANK GOD! I’m watching the keynote at SQL Pass and Microsoft SQL Server 2014 will allow us to ask for simple data we would never ask for and to graphically map it or chart it we would never want. No assistance on helping users join data from multiple systems where there is limited commonality. (Unless it is so clear the kids from the AT&T commercials could do it.) And now we can save the queries into a corporate library where all my fellow coworkers never know what my query is and be unsure that they are getting the right data so they have to build their own anyway. I am so tired of calling simple things powerful. Meanwhile, the memory performance stuff is cool and it seems like the concepts around hybrid databases between on and off premise are promising.
