When you need to connect different data sources together, JOIN, using the nested loop processing paradigm, is available for use. But you also have another connection language – MATCH – based on the sort-merge paradigm, that offers extensive connection functionality including hierarchical file outputs. This session will review and demonstrate the power of MATCH.
If you have synonyms for your raw data tables and want to limit the scope for your queries, Business Views might be for you. We will show how to create a Business View by adding folders to your synonym/MASTER so the end user will only see what you want them to see.
