T-SQL Window Functions

Thu, Jul 13 2017 19:00 UTC

T-SQL Window Functions

T-SQL window functions allow you to perform data analysis calculations like aggregates, ranking, offset and more. When compared with alternative tools to achieve similar tasks like grouping, joining, using subqueries, window functions have several interesting advantages that allow you to solve your tasks often more elegantly and more efficiently. Furthermore, as it turns out, window functions can be used to solve a wide variety of T-SQL querying tasks well beyond their original intended use case, which is data analysis. This session introduces window functions and their evolution from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2017, explains how they get optimized, and shows practical use cases.
