Working with a .Net
From exposing data that is traditionally not available to queries, to simplifying queries against dynamic data, SQLCLR can provide handling of special use cases, and even greatly enhance performance.

Nearly 10 years after it was first introduced, SQLCLR remains something of a pariah in the world of SQL Server. In this session, we’ll re-explore what’s possible with SQLCLR, key considerations, and security concerns. We’ll discuss reasons to implement SQLCLR, and reasons not to.
