Summary

Views provide a broad spectrum of functionality, ranging from simple organization to improved overall query performance. They can simplify life for developers and users by filtering the complexity of a database. They can help organize data access and provide a security mechanism that helps keep a database safe. Finally, they can provide performance improvements via the use of partitioned views and indexed views that help keep your database fast.

Some of the same advantages, including performance and security benefits, can also be achieved through the use of stored procedures. Chapter 24, “Creating and Managing Stored Procedures,” delves into these useful and powerful database objects.
