Insight's Diver Solution - a powerful data analysis, reporting,
and information delivery system - integrates the volume and variety
of data your organization collects and stores, and turns it into
meaningful information that people can use in their day-to-day activities.
It delivers information in the form of reports, charts, and analytical
applications directed specifically to the individual so they can
make better and timelier business decisions.
Insights The Diver Solution delivers a comprehensive
and fully integrated set of business intelligence capabilities,
while providing rapid implementation and a lower total cost of ownership.
The solution provides a unified technology foundation consisting
of ETL, security, reporting, ad-hoc analytics, and portal components.
This allows for a single point of administration and alleviates
the need to manage and maintain multiple dispersed programs.
Solution provides a complete, integrated information delivery
suite including software to collect, assemble, secure, and deliver
corporate data. This includes extracting, transforming, and loading
data from diverse sources, then transforming it in a timely manner
into the DI Model format. The following diagram illustrates the
flow of data through the system and provides an overview of the
building-block approach that Dimensional Insight takes towards implementation
in any environment.
The Diver Solution provides the ability to extract data from
any source system. Virtually any data format, including text files,
Oracle tables, SQL tables, MySQL tables, DB2 tables and many other
leading database and application formats can be accessed.
Once your data has been identified and collected, the correct business
rules and data relationships are established to create an application
that will meet user needs. The Diver Solution automates this
process through the integration of the data into a Model - a highly
indexed dynamic data file.
Organizations are comprised of many different types of users who
have varying requirements for information access and use. Dimensional
Insight provides many client interface options, including a browser-based
portal, a zero-footprint analysis client for external users, a web-based
OLAP data analysis tool for remote workers tasked with decision
support and business analysis responsibilities, and a powerful LAN-based
OLAP client that developers and administrators can use to design
reports, applications and perform complex analysis across the entire
enterprise data set. Additionally, there is a tool that provides
scheduled or event driven delivery of data "views" via
e-mail. Used by administrators as well as by power users, this tool
delivers timely information automatically, be it the audited results
of production builds or the latest financial reports.
Access to the Data Models is managed through a powerful security
layer that is administered centrally. Users can be restricted from
entire Data Models, sub-sets of Models, specific data dimensions,
or even particular line-item detail. The system enables administrators
to set-up groups, and utilizes existing access control lists.
