Rendering Millions of Records Fast: Printable Reports for Data-Driven Decisions [Webinar Show Notes]

Welcome to the world of data-driven insights! This blog contains the key takeaways from our recent Bold Reports webinar, “Rendering Millions of Records Fast: Printable Reports for Data-Driven Decisions.” Held on Thursday, June 27, 2024, this session was led by Senior Product Manager Anandakumar. It explored techniques for rendering millions of data records in mere seconds. If you missed it, you can find the webinar recording on our YouTube channel.

Key Takeaways

  • Render millions of data records in seconds for efficient report generation.
  • Explore the power of on-demand loading for optimized data retrieval.
  • Utilize limit-record settings for focused report generation.
  • Choose between single-page or background processing.

Benefits

  • Increased Productivity: Generate reports quickly, freeing up valuable time for analysis and action.
  • Improved User Experience: Eliminate wait times and frustration associated with slow report loading.
  • Enhanced Decision-Making: Access critical insights faster to make informed decisions in a timely manner.
  • Scalability: Handle growing data volumes with ease, ensuring reports remain efficient as your data needs evolve.

Why Speed Matters When Handling Large Data

This webinar emphasized that slow reports can significantly hinder productivity and the user experience. Imagine waiting several minutes for each report to load, only to find the information you need buried within pages of data. This frustration can lead to delays in analysis and decision-making. By prioritizing speed, you can empower users to access critical insights efficiently.

Techniques

  • Identify reports that would benefit most from faster rendering and implement on-demand loading or limit-record settings.
  • Test and refine your report parameters to achieve the optimal balance between speed and detail.
  • Consider using background processing for large reports to avoid impacting the user experience.    

Q&A

Q: Does it work in the standalone viewer embedded in my application?

All the features we discussed are operational in the Report Viewer that’s integrated into your applications.

Q: Will it work when I add more groups in the table?

Absolutely. However, we suggest minimizing the number of groups, as an increase in groups could affect performance.

Q: Does the data fetching from the database impact the performance?

Yes, overall report rendering performance includes both data fetching and processing. For example, if data fetching takes one minute, the report will render after one minute.

Q: Is there any documentation or a blog to learn more?

Yes, check out this blog and documentation to learn more about this feature.

Q: Does this feature exclusively support SQL connections, or is it compatible with other types of data connections as well?

This works for all types of connections that are available in Bold Reports.

Q: Do we need specific hardware to achieve the fast rendering?

All you require is sufficient RAM space. For instance, up to 5 million records can be efficiently rendered using a machine with 16GB of RAM.

Summary

This webinar discussed techniques for generating printable reports from millions of data records very quickly. It covered methods like on-demand loading and limiting the number of records to improve efficiency. We hope you found it valuable.
