The cost of adding a field

time to read 1 min | 69 words

I was asked to add a few fields to a report that we are showing, I had to touch the following parts of the system:

  • Database table
  • SSIS
  • Entity
  • Report page
  • Export to excel

I spent about 20% of the time in SSIS and another 70% in trying to fit the new fields into the current page without causing horizional scroll bar.

Pretty good balance, I would say.
