Whats new in SQL Server VNext?

The data and business Intelligence landscape is evolving rapidly. SQL Server 2016 is less than a year old, but the next SQL Server is already on the horizon, with a ton of new features. SQL Server on Linux is probably the catchiest one, but in this session you’ll see that there is much more: In-memory OLTP and ColumnStore index improvements, new T-SQL functions and keywords, scale out for Integration Services, support for M scripts (and sources) in Analysis Services, improvements for the R integration, … Be prepared for a whirlwind of new features!
