    Hi Bennie

    That is dependant on the scope of your project, but I would say try to reuse as much of your dimensions as possible, so that would mean more applications, which make use of shared dimensions.

    Hi Bennie,

    Frankly, there is no direct answer to this. 😊

    It completely depends on the requirement and based on that you need to figure out the optimal case. 😊

    Hi Bennie,

    I would think you would need to reduce the number of dimensions. The ideal number of dimensions that should be maintained in an Application is around the 8 mark. The more it increases beyond this the performance of the Applications would reduce.

    • Hi,

      just to add some informations, there is no limit for the number of the dimensions but for experience after 18-20 the performances fall down, to have a good performance is better mantain the application until 12 dimensions. More applications in the database doesn't affect so much the performance of the DB but obviously it depends how many applications do you create.

      Kind regards
