The official source of information on Managed Providers, DataSet & Entity Framework from Microsoft
Greetings to the Developer community:
Microsoft SQL Server team has been interacting on a regular basis with the developers and users in the form of surveys. During the last 2 years, we completed surveys that focused on the broad SQL Connectivity components that address major development platforms, including ODBC, ADO.NET, JDBC and PHP. These surveys provide us with an ability to validate some of the requests we have got from developers, users and partners such as you as well as ideas that we have gathered internally as a part of our development process. You have seen our roadmap for SQL Server evolve based on the feedback that we have received.
We view your organization as a key stakeholder in the process that we have to identify areas for future investments. The feedback you provide is valuable and each response will be read and will be treated with utmost confidence. The survey can be found in the link below and will be available until 9th September, 2011 5:00 PM PST.
