Index Methods You're Not Using by Jes Borland

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 situations 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!
