Many people are waking up and realizing that SQL Server 2005 extended support is coming to an end very soon. But, there are a lot more people who are not on SQL Server 2005 that still upgrade often because Microsoft has made software assurance a much bigger part of their licensing. Many people need software assurance for SQL Server just for license mobility, virtualization or high availability. However, moving to a new version is not always easy — a lot can go wrong. For example, the in-place upgrade can go bad, the upgrade can take way longer than planned, performance can go bad after the upgrade and many more.
