SQL Server Performance Troubleshooting

Geirmund Skiftun Digernes, IT Architect, Det Norske Veritas GL AS, Norway

It was a very constructive workshop week. Ramesh really helped us a lot identifying further improvement areas of the Team Web application. Not only did he look into the database side, but he also helped us a lot on analyzing performance of the middle tier, the rendering of web pages and suggesting user experience improvements.We are very happy with his contribution, and I am confident that it will be very valuable for deciding the road ahead for the application. Well done!

Egil, Developer, Det Norske Veritas GL AS, Olso, Norway

Thanks for the workshop. I found it very useful as the topic that you presented on Thursday was directly relevant to my everyday work as a developer. The level of detail was excellent, and issues concerning the handling of execution plans relating to stored procedures was especially useful. The accuracy of your findings was very good and I look forward to reading your report as well.
