Oracle and SQL Server may both share a common language, but certain things are handled quite differently. Jonathan Lewis (OakTable Network, Oracle Ace Director) is used to seeing heap tables (almost) everywhere, but Grant Fritchey (Microsoft SQL Server MVP) is used to seeing clustered indexes (almost) everywhere. But which arrangement performs better? And is comparative performance even the right thing to measure?

In this live discussion, these two heavyweights in their respective technology areas will debate the pros and cons of Oracle Heap Tables and SQL Clustered Indexes. Jonathan and Grant may even play a few unexpected cards during the discussion. Be prepared for a lively exchange which will not only entertain, but will teach you key concepts on Oracle and SQL Server.
