What Determines Your Report Response Time and Performance?
What determines a reporting system's speed and performance? The first things that always come to mind are hardware (memory and processor), bandwidth and number of users. While these factors undoubtedly play a rule in system performance, they are typically outside of the report developers' control. However, there are other factors that the developers may successfully employ to boost the speed and the performance of the system. These are mostly pertinent to the environments of Web-based BI, and they are doubly beneficial in the sense that they not only make the system more efficient, but also provide time end-user with a much richer BI experience.
