What 2011 Will Bring in Microsoft SQL Server Land

I am going to continue in this blog, on SearchSQLServer, SQL Magazine BI Blog and Twitter (@MSSQLDUDE) to focus on these core areas that you should watch for in 2011 for those of you that follow Microsoft SQL Server: Oracle integration, best practices, BI visualizations and SQL 11 (Denali).

But what are the new investment areas @ Microsoft and new & exciting outside of the classic SQL Server 2005/2008/2011 topics? Let’s focus on these for 2011 because it is clear this is the direction that Microsoft will take us:

1. Cloud Computing (SQL Azure & Windows Azure)

2. Database scale-out and load balancing with virtualization, SQL Azure and Parallel Data Warehouse

3. Silverlight BI hyper-cool visualizations on PCs, Slate and Windows Phone 7

4. How to take things to the next level with SQL 11

5. Cloud BI

What else interests you for SQL world in 2011?
