Geek Sync | I Have Indexes, But Do I Have the Right Indexes?

12.04.2019 @ 11:00 AM CT - 12:00 PM CT

Do you have all the right indexes on your SQL Server databases? Have you implemented any indexes other than traditional clustered and non-clustered indexes? If the answer to either question is “no” or “I don’t know,” then this session is for you. This Geek Sync will help introduce less commonly used index types and settings along with indexing methodologies. Follow along while we learn which indexes your SQL Server is begging you to make and others it wishes you would drop. Learn use cases for filtered, full-text, and columnstore indexes. There will be plenty of demos and shareable scripts to showcase the benefits too!
