4 ways archiving and compression tools can make your Microsoft Dynamics NAV system more efficient4 July 2017
When you think about performance boosters, do you conjure up images of those little 5-hour ENERGY® shot bottles that are available to buy in many pharmacies, grocery and convenience stores? Or perhaps you think about performance enhancing drugs like steroids.That’s definitely NOT what we at Qixas Group think about. You see, we tend to compare Microsoft Dynamics NAV to rocket science in a variety of ways. For example, in a recent blog post, “Architecting a Plan for Your Dynamics NAV Upgrade Isn’t Rocket Science – Or Is It?,” we made the case for why a well-designed upgrade plan is actually a lot like rocket science.
In this current article, we are comparing NAV performance enhancement tools to booster rockets. It’s a much more powerful image and we’re going to stick with it. So let’s look at what booster rockets actually are and what they do. “A booster rocket (or engine) is either the first stage of a multistage launch vehicle, or else a shorter-burning rocket used in parallel with longer-burning sustainer rockets to augment the space vehicle’s takeoff thrust and payload capability.” Wikipedia
For our purposes, the key words in that definition are: engine | augment | takeoff | thrust | capability. And the image is a space vehicle bursting into the clouds, powered by its booster rocket. Now, you can take advantage of powerful tools that will boost your Microsoft Dynamics NAV performance by 100% or even more. What we offer you is a comprehensive suite of tools designed for Microsoft Dynamics NAV that allow our experts to “tune up” your system for optimum performance. Qixas has worked with clients around the globe to implement SQL Performance Archiving and Compression Tools. And the results are outstanding.
Here are the top 4 ways that SQL Performance and Compression Tools boost your NAV ERP system:
1) Decluttering – Declutter your system while retaining your operational and reference data. Access stored archive data. Give your database a performance boost. Comply with legal and fiscal requirements. All without making changes to your system.
2) Moving your data where you want, when you want – Move data to the historic archive database. During that archiving process, use our compression tools to not only move data but replace the original detail ledger records with the new summarized data.
3) Controlling data visibility – Use the primary data within your business effectively while the detailed data is stored elsewhere.
4) Upgrading – Compress your Dynamics NAV database so you can upgrade to the latest version of NAV over the course of a weekend!
There are those who might call these capabilities magic. We call it rocket science.
