My Polaris experience

edited February 18 in Groups

Just wanted to share my experience with Polaris.

Background: We are looking to propose Polaris to an existing client as a means to reduce workspace usage on several highly sparse reporting modules. So we did a proof of concept by creating a copy of one of their highly sparse modules which is 4 billion cells (approximately 24 Gb).

Good news: In Polaris it only used 9.5 Gb

Bad news (updated): Within a few minutes after I loaded the data I got the error below which unloaded the model from memory. I'm updating this part of the post as this has now been resolved by Anaplan Support but initially I kept getting the error for several days within a few minutes after the model loaded.
