The usage of the all new database handler improves the speed of events access by many times than before," says Khirod Patra, CS lead developer. "Our systems can now handle, search through and analyse many millions of events in seconds. This combined with our unique way of updating the event count, results in much faster report generation too," adds Khirod.
