GoodData Best Practices

  • Avoid Unnecessary UPDATEs: An UPDATE is implemented as a combination of DELETE and INSERT. Try to design your model and loading routines to avoid UPDATEs of large tables. [2]
  • Using projections can improve performance of SQL queries running in Vertica. Based on the query and projections available for the referenced tables.[3]
  • Understand the Problem: Solve the problems by asking the good questions and gathering the requirements.[1]
  • Define the Dashboard: From the piles of notes to the Dashboard outline for a great communication to all the involved parties. [1]
  • Keep your visualizations simple and digestible: The best dashboards allow users to quickly understand high-level overview information and help themselves to more information as needed. [6]
  • Choose the right visualizations: The objective is to select the most appropriate chart type based on user needs and data. [1]
  • Establish clear and consistent naming conventions for metrics and attributes. This helps maintain a standardized structure and makes it easier for users to understand. [7]
  • Use version control to monitor modifications made to datasets, reports, and other artifacts. [5]
  • Create naming standards that are uniform for dashboards, reports, and other project components. This guarantees that the project organization is clear and consistent. [7]
