Using a new language construct, developers can write faster upgrade code when they want to move a field (with data) from one table to another or when they want to copy all data from one table to another.
When refactoring an app, it's common to move a field from one table to another or to copy all data from one table to another table. With this feature, the developer can copy the data from the old field to the new field, or copy the data from the old table to the new table, in a set-based manner without the need to write a loop.
This makes writing upgrade code significantly faster.
