Rapid Business Intelligence Tool
What is it?
Our Rapid Business Intelligence (RaBIT) Tool allows you to build BI solutions at the press of a button.
How does it work?
The tool uses a specification file as its input. The tool reads the file in, determines what objects need to be built, confirms what the solution will look like, then goes away and builds it. You
can effectively go from a specification to a full BI solution in seconds.
The resulting solution includes; staging tables, warehouse tables, dimensions, measure groups, a cube and the ETL procedures needed to populate the lot. It supports degenerate and SCD type 1 & 2 dimensions. It can build you basic date and time dimensions. It creates all the appropriate primary keys, surrogate keys and foreign keys. It can even be used to extend existing solutions, tacking on measure groups and dimensions to existing cubes or making use of existing dimensions in new measure groups and cubes.
