Is it worth upgrading from SQL Server 2012 sp4 to a newer version of SQL Server?  I have a fairly simple application that uses SQL server and Coldfusion.  I'm in the process of setting up a new server to update the OS to Windows Server 2016.  I would like to keep using SQL Server 2012, though I know it is 8 years old.  

SQL 2012 standard does everything that I need it to do at this point, though I loathe the idea of having to upgrade it in a few years.  Also, is there any way to upgrade the license or are you starting from scratch cost wise?
