Chapter 15 DW 2.0 and performance
An information system that does not yield adequate performance is an abomination. Most people abhor waiting, especially when waiting is unnecessary and unproductive. Peoples’ attitudes toward waiting are no different in the DW 2.0 environment.
An information system that does not provide good performance is simply ineffective. If performance is bad enough, the information system is useless. It is simply assumed that good performance is a feature of a good information system.
Yet good performance is not a feature that can simply be added into a system like a new function. Good performance has many facets and must be holistically designed and built into the system from the start.
