  • Response times were quite predictable in all cases, allowing users to "plan around" wait times after requests to generate reports.
  • Performance was adequate in all cases, involving 1-9 minute waits after requests to generate reports.
  • Handling "mixed" processes and transaction loads during the combined scenario caused little if any slowdown in performance in all cases, indicating that SAP BPC is tuned effectively for a wide range of user planning/budgeting/financial use cases. "
