    A query once efficient can get slow when the workload as well as data in the underlying table changes. There are so many parameters for any query that can drastically impact how the query performs. It is vital for us to keep an eye on various parameters and make sure that our queries give us optimal performance when there are changes in the data and workload. In this session, we will focus on various server and database configurations that impact the performance of the changing DevOps environment. Developers and DBAs will receive knowledge and scripts, which they can use to immediately gain performance from their slow running queries.

    Most organizations understand the critical nature of their data assets and the role they play in support of their business.

    A solid data foundation is necessary to ensure business decisions are based on valid and verifiable events and that the decisions made will have a positive impact on the organization. Hence, the need for a data warehouse.

    Unfortunately, data warehouses are limited by their inability to quickly evolve over time due to their somewhat rigid structure. That's where Data Vault 2.0 modeling comes in. The Data Vault process facilitates the creation of a flexible normalized data architecture that can easily evolve as required to maintain a valid and auditable representation of an organization's data assets over time. Additionally, the nature of the Data Vault objects consistent structures encourage the development and use of automation solutions to generate more of the data warehouse and using fewer resources in the process.

    Every query has a cost and it is usually measured via three important resources: CPU, IO and memory. When we deploy queries that are not optimized for the cloud, they usually lead us to either upgrade the cloud subscription model with expensive resources or extremely slow performing queries. In this session, we will focus on how we can tune our queries so when they are deployed to the cloud, they run extremely efficiently with limited resources. Developers and DBAs will receive knowledge and scripts, which they can use to immediately gain performance from their slow running queries.
