    2 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Microsoft Dynamics NAV

    Course Details

    The NAV/SQL Performance Optimization (Advanced Masterclass) is a two-day course that presents a deep-dive into the areas of performance troubleshooting a NAV/SQL system – platform/infrastructure, query strategy/programming and blocking/deadlocking.

    This course explains where problems can originate from, how to detect & analyze them, and finally how to potentially resolve them. Doing so, plenty of useful tools will also be demonstrated and provided, to enable the attendees to start the optimization of their NAV/SQL systems themselves.
