Experiencing Profile performance issues? One of the easiest and quickest ways to improve system performance is to eliminate Profile coding mistakes. The key, of course, is to first identify the situations and circumstances in which coding mistakes are likely to occur. We have published a checklist that highlights 12 of the most common Profile coding mistakes developers need to avoid. This is the first in a series of occasional blog items to be published by Mozaic Group Partners on the subject of Profile performance.
The pleas for assistance posted on the Polish website for Caritas, a worldwide Catholic Church charity that works on behalf of the world’s most vulnerable people, are sobering . . .
A cloudy, cold and gray, fall morning leaked a fine drizzle, but it did not dampen the spirits nor deter the will of Team Mozaic’s five-person cycling crew as they rode 160 miles on the weekend of Sept 24 and 25 to participate in the 36th Annual Bike MS City to Shore cycling event.
One day every year for the past six years and counting, many small, but dedicated groups of folks get together for an event at Ocean Beach Park in New London, Conn. It’s known simply as Walk. For two leisurely paced miles people of all ages, races, and creeds walk together, side by side, some with arms around each other, some holding hands and nearly everyone carrying a long-stemmed, plastic pinwheeled flower of blue, purple, yellow or orange color.
Mozaic Group Partners has helped institutions around the globe with their Profile upgrades going back to early 5.x versions, so it comes as no surprise that we are frequently asked by Profile client institutions, “Should I upgrade?”
The risk involved with a software version upgrade of any sort evokes fear and loathing among the best IT and operations people. Many things have to go right with an upgrade for it to be successful, but it only takes a few things to go wrong to make it a costly failure and expensive cleanup. Profile institutions are not immune. In fact, given the level of complex customization in practically every Profile implementation, the risk is inherently high.
