Survey says SQL Server 2005 will woo new converts

A new survey by Edgewood Solutions revealed that 31% of respondents are impressed enough with the SQL Server 2005 feature set that they are considering a switch from another database platform. The survey also showed that Oracle is the platform most likely to be affected.

However, as expected, none of the companies -- even those currently on SQL Server -- are looking to make the move any time soon, as 80% of respondents said that they need more time and training prior to rolling out SQL Server 2005.

For those who hadn't heard, SQL Server 2005 was officially launched on November 7.
