Custom Database Indexes

Tuesday, 31 July 2018 by John Rickard

Intersoft Systems tries to ensure finPOWER Connect provides the best possible performance for the majority of its Users. However, it is impossible to pro-actively ensure every combination of usage is best catered for. Therefore, there may be instances where adding custom indexes to finPOWER Connect will further improve performance.

Note, there are always performance trade-offs when adding custom indexes. For instance, creating an index to improve performance in one area could impair performance in another, e.g. when inserting or updating data into the database.

This blog provides some rules around adding custom indexes.

rPPSR Changes - Supporting the G2B

Tuesday, 20 February 2018 by John Rickard

NEWSFLASH: PPSR Go Live Date delayed until 1st October 2018.

For more information see the PPSR website.

Amongst other challenges, finPOWER Connect needs to support the G2B interface until the new rPPSR goes live on the 2nd July 2018, and after this date to continue to support existing G2B Transactions stored in finPOWER Connect.

Some of our goals, therefore, included:

  • It must be simple to switch to the new rPPSR on the go live date.
  • Existing PPSR Transactions created via the existing G2B interface must still be supported.
