This month our resident SQL Server expert, Steve Chang discussed SQL Server best practices. You can check out the the four part video series below.

In software performance optimization, real data sources are dynamic since business decisions often rely on the insights that can be retrieved at a moment's notice. SQL Server 2016 has given database administrators the ability to utilize temporal tables to bring database insights to decision-makers in both real-time and from the past. These temporal tables, also known as system-versioned or assertion tables, offer the ability to query its data to be tracked as it changes over time to understand changing business trends, improve the process of auditing data as it changes, maintain slowly changing dimensions (SCD), and ease the process of recovering tables from data corruption or loss.
