Pareto Principle

The 80/20 Performance Rule

Vilfredo Pareto, an economist in the early 1900s, made a famous observation where 80% of the nation’s wealth belonged to 20% of the population. This was later generalized into what’s commonly referred to as the Pareto principle (also known as the 80-20 rule), which states for any phenomenon, 80% of the consequences come from 20% of the causes. We see this phenomenon in software engineering where 80% of the time is spent in only 20% of the code

Canonical XML

Amplify’d from

Canonical XML specifies a number of other details, some of which are:

  • the UTF-8 encoding is used

  • line-ends are represented using the character 0x0A

  • whitespace in attribute values is normalized

  • entity references are expanded

  • CDATA marked sections are not used

  • empty elements are encoded as start/end pairs, not using the special empty-element syntax

  • default attributes are made explicit

  • superfluous namespace declarations are deleted

According to the W3C, if two XML documents have the same canonical form, then the two documents are logically equivalent within the given application context (except for limitations regarding a few unusual cases).

However, Dani discovered that footnotes will only update using this method if you first put the cursor in the footnotes area. Then pressing CTRL+A and F9 will update everything. Odd, but it works.

From an ERP application perspective this is an extremely important aspect the data exchange among the systems is kind of back-bone and the crux of very existence of the application. This data exchange can be of following types between other systems and CRM:

  1. Initial data transfer which is also called as Initial Load in SAP terminology

  1. Intermediate synchronization of data among the applications also called as Delta Load in SAP terminology

  1. Synchronization
