Are you facing performance issues
with your reports? (part2)

It is our part 2 article on issues you need to take care of while designing your reports. So, today in this article, we will discuss three issues and their solutions that you face while designing your reports.  

Data storage, integration, and confidentiality are essential for any successful business to allow for easy, quick, and remote access. Regardless of the success, good performance reports with high-quality data are one of the key building blocks for managing any business successfully. It holds for both management and customer service.

A good big data management report is the success secret that enables you to compete in a globalized market. The better a firm handles its data, the better able to respond to market demands and rivals.  

 

A good big data management report is the success secret that enables you to compete in a globalized market. The better a firm handles its data, the better able to respond to market demands and rivals.  

Let’s start by talking about the three problems you have when developing your reports: 

ISSUE 1 - Which is best for designing a report transactional database (DB) and data warehouse?

 

So, in this article, we will discuss that you should go for the data warehouse instead building your reports in a transactional database (DB).  

Solution:
When developing your reports, deciding between a data warehouse and a transactional database (DB) may be challenging. Then, our post will provide a clear understanding of selecting a data warehouse for report creation. To create your reports, let’s examine the differences between a transactional database (DB) and a data warehouse. 

Transactional database (DB)

 

  • A transactional database (DB) can assist you in processing transactions quickly. 
  • You can utilize a transactional database (DB) to produce reports if you have a few sources. 
  • Its ability to integrate and analyze data is rather constrained. 
  • There is no doubt that it provides quick implementation and is inexpensive for you. 
  • Given the company’s current situation, it is only prudent.

Data warehouse 

  • It can store endless data sources in a data warehouse. 
  • It enables the analysis and collection of enormous amounts of data. 
  • Using it, you can easily extract reports from complex data and visualize the data. 
  • Initialization requires a lot of work and is expensive to implement. 
  • You can include mid and long-term projections in your reports. 

After learning how it differs, I hope you now understand why to use a data warehouse for reporting. 

Issue 2 - You must not do multiple, full outer joins or cross joins or cross tabs

 

The second thing, we need to make sure that while designing your reports, you should not have multiple, full outer joins or cross joins or cross tabs. It slows down the performance of your reports. 

Solutions: 
The performance of your reports will slow down as we build them and perform full outer joins to combine the tables. CROSS JOIN is used to merge each row of one table with each row of another, but it slows down the running speed of your report. With cross tab, we analyze only nominal measurement scales. 

Issue 3 - Your database should be optimized

Solutions: 
It should optimize your database: So, you should use partitioning or indexing in your database, which will help improve your database and you’re reporting as well!  
Making sure your database is optimized is essential. Therefore, it is a sensible decision to partition, which enables you to divide a single database table into pieces and store data into several files or you can use indexing, which allows you to run efficient queries and enhances your database and reporting performance!
