    When I should use Direct Discovery?

    Alessandro Saccone

      Hi All,

      could you give me some scenarios in which it is possible to use Direct Discovery?

       

      Thanks

          Alessandro,

           

          I can imagine that you set up such an architecture when you MUST do it: you cannot do another way. Because the performances are not as good as a standard application (certainly by far, as we got with H OLAP architectures in the past : part of the data was in the cubes, part was in the relational databases)

           

          I would say you will use it:

          - for real time data: like production process for example (you need to fetch the most up to date data)

          - when you do not have the right to perform a partial load (access right)

          - we can imagine also that the volume of data is too big. 90% of the business requests will be done on 20% of data stored in QV: you accept to fetch some data "outside" for a particular question in a particular sheet

           

          I am interested much by the answers by other members.
