There is a million books, blogs, presentations etc about SQL Tuning. But it’s time for a different perspective.
SQL Tuning is probably the biggest topic in database technology, and it is little surprise why.

But that very allure of getting our ego stroked can mean that you have lost sight of where you are supposed to be tuning things. In this episode, I’ll explore things from a different angle, namely, that SQL tuning is perhaps not where you should be focussing your efforts when it comes to performance issues.
