WebInterfaces for Millions of records - Transactional InfoCube

Hi Gerd,

Could u please suggest me which one can i use when i'm dealing with millions of records-Large amount of data.

(Displaying data from planning folders or WebInterfaceBuilder)

Right now i'm using WebInterfaceBuilder when i'm doing planning where user is allowed to enter values - for millions of records like Revenue forecast planning on salesorders.

Thanks in advance,

Thanks for your time,

    Hello Saritha,

    Well - technically there is no big difference whether you are using Web interfaces or planning folders. All data has to be selected from the data base, processed by the BPS, the information has to be transmitted to the PC and displayed there. So both front ends should have roughly the same speed.

    Sorry, but one question - is it really necessary to work with millions of data records online? The philosophy of the BPS is that you should limit the number of records you use online as much as possible - it should be an amount also the user can handle online - i.e. manually working with every record (which is probably not possible when handling 1 million of records). If a large number of records should be calculated/manipulated this should be done in a batch job - i.e. a planning sequence that runs in the back ground. This prevents the system from terminating the operation due to a long run time (usual time until a time out for an online transaction occurs is about 20 min) and gives you also more opportunities to control memory use or parallelizing of processes (see note 645454).

    Best regards,
