Attend this session and understand how, why, and when SQL Server uses statistics and how the new CE will help improve performance.
This session looks at the two main techniques to efficiently implement searches where users can select between a large set of search conditions
Do you have an application running with an in-market version of SQL Server, such as 2012 or 2014? Then this session is for you! We will see more in-depth what enhancements are in the latest SPs and 2016, and why you should install them.

In this session, we will introduce a step-by-step approach to adopting the technology, aimed at beginners who are interested in how it can fit into their own environments.
In this session we will take a deep dive into one of the, in my opinion, most exciting new feature in SQL Server 2016, the Query Store. Learn all about the inner workings of the query store and how it can help you analyse query performance!
Enter the world of SQL Server concurrency to experience the age old problem of Locking, Blocking and Deadlocking. Let's investigate pessimistic isolation and whether optimistic concurrency could be the answer to all our problems or the last resort.
Locking and blocking is SQL Server’s default method of managing concurrency in a multi-user environment. In this session we’ll look at the three main aspects of locking, including when locks cause blocking and also examine ways to minimize blocking.
In this talk, you will get an overview on what to think about when storing data in a document database.
In this session we'll look over some of the things which you should be looking at within your virtual environment to ensure that you are getting the performance out of it that you should be.
Learn about keys and how to get them right.
SQL Server 2016 introduces the Query Store. The Query Store will change how you tune queries. Come to this session to learn everything you'll need.
A look at the basics of CLR integration with SQL Server, focusing on the nuts and bolts of CLR objects, followed by some practical examples.
Information Workers and Data Analysts do “myth busting" on corporate performance and forecasts on regular basis. This session uncovers ways to take advantage of Power BI as Software as a Service (SaaS) for a "myth busting" lab you can try at home!
Sets are king when it comes to SQL Server, but sometimes you need to see data row by row. Window Functions help you get the best of both worlds. Learn when and where these functions can help you get what you need without compromising performance.
Attend this session and understand how, why, and when SQL Server uses statistics and how this new feature will help improve performance.
A deep dive into batch mode scalability with column store index and SQL 2014.
This 500 level session will focus on using undocumented statements and trace flags to get insight into how the query optimizer works and show you which operations it performs during query optimization.
We all know that ‘Indexing’ is KING when it comes to achieving high levels of performance in SQL Server. When Indexing also combines 2 of the Enterprise features: Partitioning & Compression
Join me for an hour of playing with different ETL patterns by using Clustered Columnstore Indexes. Using different Hardware might lead you to different conclusions,and the size of the workload is always the paramount of your performance.Loading data first and then creating a Clustered Columnstore or creating Clustered Columnstore and than loading - join me to find the answers!
In this session I will talk about backup, integrity check, and index and statistics maintenance, and how you can use my maintenance solution (http://ola.hallengren.com) in an enterprise environment.
Join this session to make a deep dive into how SQL Server implements physical locking with lightweight synchronization objects like Latches and Spinlocks.
This session will help DBAs to understand what changes they need to make in their performance and monitoring practices for virtualized database servers.
Once you've decided to move to Azure with any of your databases, you're going to need to know how they're performing, this session shows you.
Alberto will start with a simple query and he will perform on stage all the necessary steps to optimize it, showing you the tools ant the techniques used to identify the bottleneck and to fix the performance issues
