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.
