How to compare results through reports without using Performance Analytics ?
We understand that PA provides real-time status updates, summarises of past information and provides trending information for processes so that action can be taken as soon as performance degradation is detected. Performance Analytics and Reporting are 2 different applications and PA is not a replacement of reporting. Both of them have their own functionalities.
We strongly recommend you to switch over to PA if you want to compare the results or see the trend. You have lot many capabilities and options in PA.
