And how can you improve a query? By updating statistics, minimize logging, creating indexes, compress the data, partition the table, ... :-) ;-)
You are absolutely right, but without knowing wich queries are executed, you can't create the needed indexes, choose a proper partition schema, etc. :-P. Sounds like the egg and chicken discussion
I actually have an answer for that discussion. The egg came first. An egg has the potential to become something more or less than it's parent. A chicken can only be a chicken.
Of course, both are edible. Yum!
As an equally interesting question, I wonder what possessed that first someone to think "Ok... I'm going to eat the next thing that comes out of that chicken's butt."

Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
