I know that the DATETIME data type is no longer an ANSI/ISO Standard and I have heard the Microsoft plans to eventually stop supporting it but I cannot find any mention of this out on the internet, besides the few comments I came across which I cannot find now. So does anyone know if Microsoft has said they plan to eventually stop supporting it?
If yes can you maybe point me to such (even if it is just someone respectable that is making the statement), as I have some folks that would rather be reactive rather than proactive and demand to see where DATETIME is no longer going to be support. As if it no longer being ANSI/ISO Standard SQL is not a good enough reason to start moving our DATETIME fields to DATETIME2 fields and swapping out GETDATE() for SYSDATETIME().
Thanks in advance.
