Had an awesome example of that at a previous employer.

They had a booking system for customer appointments that they were very proud of.

Create a handful of appointments over a day or two for one or two clients, and it looked quite pretty and responsive.

Unfortunately, even though the appointment display only showed the date time and customer name (and a couple of other small bits of info) they had developed it to bring down the whole customer object.
Over WCF.
refreshing the entire view every 30 seconds.
And when I say 'whole customer object' I mean entire history, every prior appointment and all the associated details.

Selecting a client from the appointments list was fast !

Running it with a 'week to a page' view, with 20 minute appointments with four or five Clients each with 10 or more appointments...

First time it was run with that sort of number was, of course, live at the client site.

Oh how we laughed!
