Reporting just got a whole lot faster.


A couple of weeks ago Sprezzatura blogged about their new report viewer which is now part of S/List and which dramatically reduces the time taken to produce reports for preview.

I had a nice little demo in which i could show the difference between running a List statement in the OpenInsight .net print engine and the new Sprezzatura Viewer. However, to get even more speed S/List is now configured to only operate with the new Sprezz Report Viewer.

Fortunately, I was so amazed by the results I took a video of the comparison and I’ll gladly take you through the video using a WebEx session if you drop me a line.  We can then also try running one of your reports (List Statements) against your data file and see what a difference it makes.

The new version of S/List is now being tested by a couple of key S/List users and reports that are coming back are more than favourable.  For example: “WOW!!! S/List Express is fast. For example in a 6000+ employee database one report that previously took 2 min 57 sec now runs in 43 sec!”.

If you are running OpenInsight version 9.x (sorry S/List Express does not work with version 8.0.8 and prior) and you’d like super fast column based reporting then drop me a line and we’ll see what S/List Express can do for you.
