Important Preliminary Remarks: The overall performance depends on the size of the databank and /or the volume of master and transaction data as well as on the number of users accessing the system simultaneously. For these reasons, the basic use of our software is limited by the following hardware recommendations. For further information whether your desired data analysis complies with the basic usage of our software, please contact one of our experienced consultants. If this is not the case hardware requirements are generally significantly higher.
