Greetings to the SQL Server community :


Last year in October 2009, we introduced  the process of interacting on a regular basis with the developers and users in the form of surveys.  During the last 12 months, we completed surveys that focused on the broad SQL Connectivity components, 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 November 2, 2010 5:00 PM PST.


Thank you,
