Let’s talk about Claris® FileMaker® and transactions! Vincenzo Menanno discusses what transactions are, how they relate to FileMaker data operations (creating, updating, and deleting records), database normalization, and how to use transactional concepts to improve FileMaker performance, especially over a wide area network (WAN).

Summary: During this presentation, you will learn a way to build a baseline so you have a starting point, then dive into the mechanics of transactions – discussing things that are easy, parts that are difficult, and areas you can build upon. Discover the impact that unstored calculations have on solution performances and what you need to consider to convert the calculations into stored values. You will leave this session knowing how transactional transformation can deliver a dramatic difference for your FileMaker users.
