Success Story

“The Revelwood team did a lot of work behind the scenes before we had our collaborative working sessions. They came to us with pointed questions and asked what was important. It helped shed a light on the right approach for us to take to solve our memory usage problem.”

A publicly traded REIT (real estate investment trust) with more than 3,000 properties needed to upgrade their environment. They engaged with Revelwood to both help with the upgrade and help convert their existing reports to the new version. During this process, Revelwood discovered that an IBM Planning Analytics allocation cube was using a massive amount of RAM. This meant that the processing was really slow and the performance was not ideal.
