Course Description

SQL Server 2012 provides advanced features to enable large data to be stored and accessed within the database itself. By using the FILESTREAM and FileTable features documents are stored in the Windows file system but accessed through the database using T-SQL queries. SQL Server also allows these documents to be searched for words or phrases. Advanced query techniques can also be used to manipulate data to retrieve specific data. This course demonstrates how to configure FILESTREAM, FileTables, and Full-Text Search. It also demonstrates how to use advanced query technique such as PIVOT, UNPIVOT, CROSS APPLY, OUTER APPLY, and CTEs, as well as Spatial data. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Exam 70-464: Developing Microsoft SQL Server Databases. This series may also cover SQL Server 2014 features and functionalities as required by the exam objectives. This exam is one of the requirements for the MCSE: Data Platform certification path.
