Main Presentation:

Execution Plans in SQL Server 2017

After our Modern Migration Tour special event at 3pm (see below!) stay for more SQL Server insights! Performance Tuning starts with looking at a plan SQL Server internally uses to execute T-SQL. There are many parts to the plan as well as additional options for performance tuning. This session will provide real-world examples of T-SQL that can cause execution plans to not be optimal. The plan might also expose additions in the form of new indexes that can be added to improve performance. There are many paths to reading these plans that need to be discussed and probably you will hear 'it depends' in this session. Explanations of why it depends will be used with examples. Plus a look at Query Store in 2017.
