Observed improvements on speed:
|Local DB||SQL EXPRESS|
|New forecast creation||13 sec||5 sec|
|import forecast||1 min 30 sec||45 sec|
|export forecast||8 min 51 sec||5 sec|

If you are already on a full SQL version, ensure that you have applied all patches.
Unpatched versions can attribute to the slowness.
