Currently a Godzilla sized risk is coming over the hill, and that is the end of extended support for MS SQL Server 2012.
All Microsoft products have an ‘End of Life’ and this refers to the date where a specific version of software is at the end of its useful life, and Microsoft will have ceased selling or developing it any further. The End of Life date is often 5 years from release date.
Typically following on from the product End of Life, Microsoft then offer an additional 5 years of Extended Support.
During which time Microsoft continues to provide security and reliability updates, and bug fixes, but non-security updates are not provided, unless an additionally fee is paid and a support agreement is put in place.
In short, this means that if your business still has MS SQL Server 2012 as a database server, your time is running out!
