This final chapter ends the book with a summary of the areas that we have covered and where ADO.NET Data Services is heading. The ADO.NET Data Services framework is a key enabling technology that fits as part of Microsoft’s cloud computing strategy. It relates to a number of emerging technologies such as Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, SQL Server Data Services, Oslo, and the Entity Framework V2.0. We then describe each of these new areas and how they relate to ADO.NET Data Services. Finally, we close out the book with the enhancements that are expected in the next version of ADO.NET Data Services, code-named Astoria vNext.
