SQL Server Native Client wants to hear your opinion

Dear SQL Server developers and users:

It is this time of the year when we in the SQL Server Native Client product team take a step back, review the priorities and goals for the long term and identify areas that will benefit from investments.

We view YOU and your organization as a key stakeholder in this process and would like to gather your inputs in this survey, which should take no more than 5 - 10 minutes. The feedback you provide is very valuable and be rest assured that each and every response will be read and will provide the background for some of the key decisions that we will make that will benefit our SQL Server database application developer community.


This survey will be open for your submissions until January 31, 2010 and can be found here.
