Common Table Expressions (CTEs) make complex data summarization easy.
By Joe Pluta
Common Table Expressions, or CTEs, are one of my favorite tools in SQL. Simply put, they allow you to encapsulate your business logic. I’ve written in the past about how to use CTEs to encapsulate data arithmetic. However, you can generalize that encapsulation further, and lately I’ve been doing a lot of that.

According to the results of IBM's new global study on cloud transformation there has been a drastic shift in business needs as only three percent of respondents reported using a single private or public cloud in 2021, down from 29 percent in 2019 – establishing hybrid cloud as the dominant IT architecture.
The global study, conducted by IBM Institute for Business Value (IBV) in cooperation with Oxford Economics, surveyed almost 7,200 C-suite executives across 28 industries and 47 countries. The findings indicate that the cloud market has entered the hybrid, multicloud era and concerns around vendor lock-in, security, compliance and interoperability remain paramount.
