Is it possible to compare 2 profiles in analyst; the requirment here is i need to compare data of profile which was run 1 week back and run another profile today and compare the 2 profiles. Note: i will create profiles base don a single data object only.
I need a way to compare data between last run to todays run.
how can we achieve this?
Great question and usage of profiling beyond a point assessment. As you may know, in the Developer, you can multi-select on multiple points (source, txn, mapplet) in the mapping and run the 'Compare Profile' feature. This will give a cross field, side-by-side comparision of profiling stats at various points in the mapping.
In the Analyst, we are working on exposing historic/comparative statistics across the same profiles run at different points in time. For now, you can accomplish this as other customers/partners have, via simple queries against the profiling warehouse. I can help you with this (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested.
Also, we do support historic trending of metrics in scorecards as well...
