High Impact Aerobics – Performance Tuning
How much time is your business losing due to slow system performance? How much of an impact is it having on user moral?
There are many factors effecting system speed e.g. the design of the database, its use of index keys, and the methods used for data retrieval; these can have a major impact on any database system.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV is no exception. More often than not, analysis of keys and code (identified through monitoring) can lead to significant performance gains.
Chances are that if you ever see a “Searching for … records..” message or experience long delays in the system responding, then you have a performance issue that can be corrected.
“There’s always room for improvement.”
It doesn’t fit any more – Solution extensions and Re-design.

Turning Back Time – Re-Building from Scratch
Some time ago we were approached by a Microsoft Selling Partner who had a client with some serious data issues. It appeared there had been some issues present (within the system) that had only just been identified, but had been present since initial go live, this resulted in a system that did not reflect reality. They thought that the only recourse to this issue was to “start again” and manually re-process 24 months worth of transactions, re-entering countless numbers of notes and comments before being able to get back to their normal day-to-day business.
It was quite a challenge to undertake given that they had upgraded their system during the timeframe, and GST had also been introduced as well.
Our solution provided them with a rebuilt database, all transactions re-processed correctly, all other data re-created, with no interruptions to there normal business.
“Most often in life, the luxury of turning back time and correcting past mistakes, is not an option. Thankfully there are exceptions!”
When the rules have changed! – Selective Correction
This company had approached us with a database where a portion of that database had been incorrectly changed as a result of a fix that had been applied to correct a different issue. This problem had caused an inconsistency that made it impossible to correct the issue through journals, and was having a major impact on their financial reporting ability.
Although fixing this year’s transactions was simple, the previous year (n) could not be fixed (as there was no way of determining what the data should have been before the problem occurred). This left the customer with a system that reported different prior year’s financial results, than those that had been previously reported.
The solution was novel, yet we repaired the data to a point where standard journals could be used to re-balance the inconsistencies.
“The simplest solutions are always the best.”
Time to Re-organise – Merge or Re-Structure Data
Really wishing you could re-structure your chart of accounts?, combine two Departments data?, or combine two customers history when customer duplicates are found?
All this (and more) are possible. What’s your need?
“In life, two wrongs don’t make a right.
Lucky this is just data”.
