If an application has one or more transactions that perform a relatively large amount of work with little or no user interaction, those transactions can be encapsulated and stored on the database server as a stored procedure. Stored procedures make it possible to perform data processing operations directly at the server, which typically is a high-performant computer that can provide quick, coordinated data access. More importantly, because a stored procedure is invoked by a single SQL statement (or API/Cursor object method), fewer messages have to be transmitted across the network—only the data that is actually needed at the client has to be sent across the wire.
IT has undergone a dramatic shift in recent years. For some organizations, a distributed workforce is the new norm. For everyone, threats have ramped up and new compliance mandates are popping up across the globe. Cybersecurity is both more important and more complicated than ever before.
