Replay- The DataView Show #14: SQL Performance Best Practices – especially for Big Data

This presentation discusses the SQL best practices that are critically important as databases get bigger and more complex. This presentation will discuss the SQL writing techniques, table cardinality, index factors, and other consideration that make your SQL run faster. You will learn through this presentation SQL best practices tuning tips, the real life issues, and agile SQL considerations for working with Spring Batch, Docker Containers and other agile tools.

This presentation was developed for application developers to help them understand high performance SQL factors for running against tables that contain billions of rows. These SQL techniques, table factors and index considerations discussed show how small critical factors can make a big performance difference against big data tables. SQL functions, UDFs, common table expressions CTE and other SQL techniques are only some of the factors that need to be considered in the SQL development cycle. This presentation will help you understand all these SQL performance factors and the best practices used to get the fastest SQL results from your biggest tables.
