April 2014 WISSUG meeting
Indexing is a crucial, yet often overlooked aspect of database and application design. It’s no secret that proper indexing can make a significant impact on performance, but it can be a confusing and even intimidating task to implement. Fortunately, we have an expert that can help…
This month we welcome back Jes Borland.
She will be presenting the topic Index Methods You’re Not Using.
There are index methods in SQL Server that can enhance the performance of your queries - but most likely, you aren't using them! Using examples, I'll show you how filtered indexes, compressed indexes, and indexed views work; how they can improve performance; and what situation each is best used in. If you have a solid knowledge of index basics and want to add to your collection, this is the session for you!
