Microsoft SQL Server 2012 review
16 July 2012
Summary: Ironically, the SQL Server 2012 installation process uses PowerShell. As with virtually every other current version of a Microsoft server product, Windows PowerShell 2.0 is a requirement for deploying SQL Server 2012.
We were also disappointed by the lack of improvements to SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS).
Summary: I've long had a five-point rule for database upgrades. It means you should have at least five features you're interested in before upgrading your database. And while I was only able to talk about a small handful here, there are a plethora of features I wasn't able to talk about. SQL Server Integration Services has had a major overhaul, and there are some really nice enhancements to SQL Server Analysis Services and SQL Server Reporting Services as well.
