Inconsistent performance and delayed response time typically disrupt the mundane regularity of the tasks. In this way, better performance by business intelligence and performance management is indeed an opportunity to render a smart and successful platform for business with productive user traffic and buy-in for the rendered solutions.
It will not be an overstatement to regard the tuning exercise of the cognos solutions more like an art rather than a scientific and technological attempt, since the configuration of every component and its tuning requires most stable performance at every step and with the rightly needed resources. These complex number of components, architecture and the inter-dependence in the external components make this tuning process more than an artistic jugglery. Indeed this tuning exercise requires an excessive and in-depth knowledge of cognos business intelligence and performance management components. It also requires skills and optimization techniques.
Bilytica has defined a methodological approach to address the problems encountered in performance, in the business intelligence and performance management environment. Relying on this very methodology and the gained experiences from cognos tuning, the cognos consultant will consider the following parts of the architecture:
- Application tiers: application server (one or more).
- Data tier: data sources (one or more).
