It is an interesting question that is being raised now in a recent trade show. Many people reported to us that their existing system which used to run fast is now running slow. Too much data. Even their end of day reports takes an unacceptable amount of time to run and print. What they have done is hit a performance bottleneck. It is not only reports although reporting is often one of the areas it is first noticed. Other parts of the software also run slow. The simple fact is that these items are taking too long to run because their software is using poor data engines. As the amount of data the business has collected has outgrown their softwareâs ability. They now have two choices either switch to a better system like ours that uses Microsoft SQL or delete data.
