Performance Tuning and Optimization

Business Intelligence – Performance Tuning and Optimization

If your Reports and Dashboards are not returning results in sub-seconds, your end-users will stop using the system (if they haven’t already)! Poor performance is one of the key reasons for poor adoption of Business Intelligence solutions. At Tegnosis, we have tuned databases, cubes, reports & dashboards, so that end-users are thrilled with the response time. We can come in for a short-engagement, identify the root cause of performance issues, and remedy the situation quickly.

If your performance issues are related to load-times, and your ETL process does not finish within its allocated time-window, we address those issues as well. We inspect your system at various levels to find bottlenecks and optimize and tune them.

  • Database level – Some performance issues are related to the database design.
  • ETL level – If best practices for parallel processing and multi-threading are not utilized, performance can suffer.
  • Cube level – We look at aggregations level, cube design, calculated measures, etc. to identify the performance bottlenecks at the cube level.
  • Disk/Memory level – Sometimes the issue has to do with the storage system and disk performance.
  • Report/Query level – A poorly written query can cause major performance headaches.
  • Identifying the underlying root cause enables better optimization leading to accelerated system performance.
