Learn how EBX5 can help you better manage dimensions and hierarchies, and improve the accuracy and consistency of your business intelligence system.
Business Intelligence systems provide users with easy to use, self service reporting capabilities. With browser-based user interfaces, data visualization and dashboards, end users can explore and analyze their data quickly and efficiently.
While reporting has achieved a high level of sophistication, business teams still struggle with what seem to be simple tasks: maintaining a unique definition of dimensions (customers, products, accounts), comparing values between time periods, or defining hierarchies.
The root cause is that the underlying master data used by BI is not well governed. Without a single source of dimensions, hierarchies and reference data -- the information that characterizes your transaction data -- your BI relies on inconsistent data and requires manual-intensive spreadsheet loading and ETL jobs.
Traditionally, MDM solutions were designed to address specific issues, such as operational customer hub or product master, but were not adapted to provide a true foundation for Business Intelligence.
With EBX5, Orchestra Networks has introduced the first MDM software designed with the same philosophy of modern BI systems. With model-driven capabilities, powerful browser-based hierarchy management, sophisticated version control on meta-data and data and collaborative workflow, EBX5 complements your BI and delivers business users with a self-service, one-stop-shop solution for all their dimensions, hierarchies and reference data.
Integrated with sources systems and connected to your Enterprise Data Warehouse and reporting tools, EBX5 is the command center for your most critical business data -- it is the foundation of an accurate, efficient business intelligence system.
As a multidimensional MDM solution, EBX5 delivers a complete set of features for master data management. In a Business Intelligence program, EBX5 provides 3 critical capabilities:
- Manage BI dimensions and hierarchies
