"Unbeatable speed and compression with a colummn-structured relational database."
"In the future I would love to see a slightly better automation engine, just for the data integration layer, to make it slightly easier for end-users or junior developers to get involved in incremental updating."
"More tools to help designers should be included."
"I would like to see better visualization features."
"I think that the error messages need to be made more specific."

Microsoft's SQL Server data warehouse solution integrates your traditional data warehouse with non-relational data and it can handle data of all sizes and types, with real-time performance.
