Session Summary for Attendees:  Join us for a real-world HFM rules tuning exercise, where we see how to cut consolidation times 40–80% in under an hour. For this we'll use a real-world application and rules. We’ll walk through the process of analyzing the current rule performance then measure incremental improvements. Many of the changes we'll see are common rule changes that can have a dramatic effect on consolidation performance.
