Index Methods You're Not Using

Jes Borland, Premier Field Engineer Microsoft

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, we’ll explore how filtered indexes, compressed indexes, and indexed views work; how they can improve performance; and which methods work best in which situations. If you have a solid knowledge of index basics and want to add to your collection, this is the session for you.
