Why do I focus on procedure optimization?
Imagine your new data-driven web site that you skimped on until it became successful ... and how much harder it just became now that your miracle happened ... mentioned on Instapundit, CNN, Good Morning America, etc. ... and your image is firmly established by multi-minute response times and "connection timeout" messages.
Or a data-entry application that wastes 5 unnecessary seconds for every minute of data entry over an 8 hour workday? Is a recession a good time to throw away 170 productive hours a year? Per person?
I love database procedure optimization. Due to the "bottleneck" nature of the resource sharing intrinsic to relational databases, there is no other place in the IT world where you can take a suffering system and find a "silver bullet" that solves everything. For example, I had one client that was experiencing 95% CPU utilization, and was going the route of paying for 64-bit, multi-CPU systems and the Microsoft licenses to go with them (retail 25k per CPU), and I was able to make a one-word change in two procedures that dropped them to 10% CPU. Savings of a few hundred thousand dollars? Not a bad ROI for a few hours of analysis.
How much can I save for you?
