Texpress allows a more natural representation of real world data by supporting complex objects within single tables. This approach typically results in 90% fewer tables than the equivalent, normalised relational data model. EMu comprises only 25 tables. Competing normalised data models can easily number 200+ tables. Having fewer tables greatly reduces the number of joins required, thereby improving performance. It also makes report development more intuitive and does not require familiarisation with dozens of keys, foreign keys, linkage tables and other relationships in order to produce reports.
