Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1 is now available as a community technology preview. The two most expected features so far are the SharePoint 2013 support for the new BI features and the HTML5 support for PowerView.
Well, the rumor has it that the HTML5 support is NOT going to make it in this service pack. I still have my hopes up based on some conversations I have had with some parties who have asked to remain anonymous, but this rumor is also coming from a pretty reputable source.
As I have said before, should this be true, Microsoft is running a very high risk of not being able to improve its position in the Gartner’s BI magic quadrant, which will make it that much harder for anyone in the Microsoft BI ecosystem to evangelize the product.
