My boss convinced me this week to demo the new features in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 to our team, so that they can get a basic handle on why I think SQL Server 2000 should be buried.

The big day is on 27 January, and I have 45 minutes in which to make the presentation. All of our customers are still on SQL Server 2000, so I am expecting to demo some 2005 features as well.

Here is my proposed list:

– Management Studio overview – 5 min
– Table partitioning – 5 min
– SSIS overview – 10 min
– Compression (2008) – 10 min
– Master Data Services (2008) – 10 min
– Questions – 5 min
