The why and how of universe optimisation
Performance isn’t the only thing that suffers as a result of poor universe optimization and design. So too does ease of use, and in the worse cases incorrect results are returned.
I’ve seen so many poorly designed universes and most customers are blissfully unaware of the dramatic and negative impact it has. They are also unaware, that in many cases, it doesn’t take much to fix. This was one of the reasons why I’ve developed a web based training course that Enterprise Support customers can attend for free. The course allows attendees to fix all these issues!
The web based course is an ‘Expert Guided Implementation’ called ‘Universe Optimization and Best Practice’ and is designed for customers on XI3 and BI4 using ‘relational’ universes. It provides those that attend:
- An understanding what good universe best practice is.
- An easy means to check if their universes will always return correct results or not!
- All the information and assistance to make changes to their universe to
- guarantee correct results every time
- improve performance by just pressing a few buttons
Those that have previously attended this free course rate it very highly with the average rating of 9 out of 10 for “I would recommend this EGI to others”. One customer said “I have been designing universes for more than 5 years and I still learnt some great tips.” Some customers have seen dramatic performance improvements having followed the course, for example a 20 minute query now taking just 3 minutes!
If you’re an Enterprise Support customer with ‘relational’ universes then I can’t recommend this course enough. Get all your universe designers on it. The next course runs in the EMEA timezone on 11th September.
