DataZen is Officially Dead, Customers Need to Transition to SQL 2016

Microsoft has officially killed the independent DataZen product stack with most of its features now incorporated into SQL Server 2016, SQL Server Reporting Services and Power BI.

Customers will be given 1 year of support following the release of SQL Server 2016 and then the product will be considered end of life.

To offer Datazen customers more time to plan on when to transition to SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services Microsoft will provide support for existing deployments of Datazen-branded products for 1 year following the SQL Server 2016 GA release.

Our team is actively working on the SQL Server Migration Assistant for Datazen which will help customers in migrating content from Datazen Server 3.0 to SSRS 2016. We plan to release the Migration Assistant shortly after general availability of SQL Server 2016.
