The Pyramid application's content is borken into 4 key segments or domains: private content (for a specific user); group content (shared content for analysts); public content (shared content for all user types); and legacy content (for accessing ProClarity content stores)
A cube or data model is a powerful analysis tool that lets you view and analyze your data in a multi-dimensional or tabular format, from any angle, in any combination, by offering a ‘slice and dice’ and drilldown approach.
A dashboard is designed to be shared as a live, interactive user application. Dashboards typically include multi report components and queries. Dashboards are generated by the bioPoint applicaiton.
The Data Modeler is a wizard for importing data from one or more sources into a user-driven data model that can then be deployed instantly for analysis, reporting and dashboards.
A high level grouping of hierarchical trees used to analyze a cube
Feeds is a mini-portal within the BI Office application that hosts the alert and publications produced by the BI Office engine for end users.
Alternative representations of the KPI measures in a cube.
Hierarchical trees of elements that store parent-child relationships between entities. Used to analze, slice and dice a cube of data from a very high-level to a granular level of detail (dril-down)
The HTML5 viewer application allows end user to access their content via a web browser. The viewer is also accessible via various native apps on different mobile platforms like iOS, Android and WinRT.
A logical connection between reporting components that allow them to 'share' data when triggered by the end user. Interactions can be used to drive data sharing, conditional formating and data injections.
KPI. Key Performance Indicator. A predefined measure used to track performance of a strategic goal, objective, plan, initiative, or business process. A KPI is evaluated against a target. KPIs can be shown inside the grid component or in the separate Gauges view.
A sub-set of member elements in a hierarchy that described all member elements at the SAME depth within the hierarchy's tree structure.
Members are the inidividual nodes within a hierarchy that describe a specific item in the underlying data. Members can have subordinate objects (children) and can have superordinate objects (parents).
Metadata includes any information that is captured and maintained with the purpose of supporting the development, administration and usage/navigation of the Business Intelligence Environment
The Missing Data Wizard (MDW) is a tool for checking queries against data models. It provides a point-and-click interface for correcting any inconsistencies found between the two.
Parameters are functional extensions added into BI Office to allow users to make runtime selections from their data models and change calculations, sets or members and/or selections that appear in query results.
A PAXL is a file that encapsulates a book, dashboard or publication.
Security Profiles provide granular access control for content producers when delivering content to other users on the platform.
A report designed to be 'published' as a static document. Publications are generated by the bioWriter application.
Report Folders are hierarchical nodes in the report tree used to conveniently organize and present a book of reports to end users.
The main panel in the client interface tat houses a single given report. A panel is subdivided into report panes.
a sub-division of a report, the pane houses one of the report components (grid, chart, text, slicer, gauge). Report panes canb be resized and their layout can be changed as needed.
The listing of reports and report folders contained inside a book. The items are typically arrayed in a convenient hierarchy or tree.
Reports are separate queries or analyses in an analytic Book.
A Wizard for designing advanced sets with a point and click interface.
Slides are panels in a dashboard.
Variables are an extension to the basic functionality of MDX, providing a convenient method for end users to feed values into equations, formulae and queries to change they way they resolve. This is particularly useful for things like What-If analysis.
