From the Preface:
Stacia Varga, Denny Cherry, and Joseph D'Antoni wrote:Organization of this book:

This book is divided into nine chapters, each of which focuses on a different benefit that you can experience in the SQL Server family.

Chapter 1, “Faster queries,” introduces enhancements to In-Memory OLTP, memory-optimized tables, and Analysis Services to make Transact-SQL and analytical queries run faster.

In Chapter 2, “Better security,” we describe the new security features that give you more options for protecting your data.

Chapter 3, “Higher availability,” explains the new options for building high-availability solutions.

The focus in Chapter 4, “Improved database engine,” is the significant database engine enhancements that enable you to better manage performance and storage.

Chapter 5, “Broader data access,” explains how to work with temporal tables, JSON, and PolyBase.

In Chapter 6, “More analytics,” we provide an overview of expanded analytical capabilities in Analysis Services tabular models and the new, scalable in-database analytics made possible by SQL Server R Services.

Chapter 7, “Better reporting,” highlights the improvements to the Reporting Services development environment and the user experience.

In the last two chapters, we transition to new data platform features in the cloud by introducingthe features that bring Azure SQL Database into greater parity with SQL Server on-premises in Chapter 8, “Improved SQL Database,” and by describing how to get started with data warehousing in Azure in Chapter 9, “Introducing Azure SQL Data Warehouse.”
