Microsoft officially released SQL Server 2016 on 1 July 2016.

It’s the next upgrade from Microsoft that forms the foundation of its data strategy.

SQL Server 2016 introduces three new principal security features—Always Encrypted, Row-Level Security, and dynamic data masking.

Businesses have been promised deeper insights into all of their data, with new capabilities that go beyond business intelligence to perform advanced analytics directly within their database and present rich visualisations for business insights on any device.
