Designing Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Server-Side Solutions

This three-day instructor-led course provides students with the knowledge and skills to design server-side solutions for Microsoft SQL Server 2005. The course focuses on teaching database developers who work in enterprise environments to identify and place database technologies during design to achieve a suitable solution that meets the needs of an organization. Students will also learn to consider the solution from a system-wide view instead of from a single database or server perspective.
