Automation - achieve a truly agile and flexible system

Discovery Hub®

– The power of 


Let’s face it, Traditional project workflows simply can’t keep up with the volume, variety, and velocity of new data sources. It’s critical for companies to have a metadata driven approach to their BI architecture. In fact, it is essential for business agility.

A metadata driven approach

Simply put, metadata is data that describes other data. It summarizes basic information that makes finding and working with data faster and easier. Things like: database system names, table and column names, file size, date and time of the last load, dependencies, data owners, data stewards, etc. This type of information forms the foundation of TimeXtender’s Discovery Hub®.


To ensure your data is accessible and scalable without additional IT burden, it is critical to work at the metadata level. To do this effectively, automation is key. It is the only way to achieve a truly agile and flexible system. From reducing risk to slashing development time, automation offers a broad range of possibilities.

Full control

Discovery Hub® is a single metadata-driven software platform that is agile and automated. The software automatically generates the code necessary to create the ODX and the MDW, and to move the data between different Microsoft SQL and Azure databases.

You can even take full control of the code output and modify it if needed. By anchoring your code inside Discovery Hub®, you get version control without having to move and deploy your code from one environment to the next; Discovery Hub® will do that for you automatically.

You can minimize time spent turning complex data into valuable information without coding and with better performance and more possibilities. Tedious and time-consuming tasks like tracking historical data and incremental loading take only a few minutes with this approach.

Saves money 

Working with Discovery Hub® also saves money. Because a robust metadata repository is the foundation of our approach there is no need to purchase an expensive, stand-alone, special-purpose metadata repository that makes association with technical and operational metadata difficult. With Discovery Hub®, associations and inconsistencies are easily identified which provides a great foundation for metadata management, data governance, and data quality. But that’s not all. Discovery Hub® is poised to support your journey toward cloud-based data warehousing. This includes dealing with challenges like hybrid environments, bandwidth optimization, and security.


Reduction in build costs


Reduction in maintenance costs

Power of automation

Automation provides a faster, easier and more accurate means to access, model, govern and understand data. By combining the power of automation with a metadata-driven approach, you get results that are five times faster than traditional methods, including a 70% reduction in build costs and up to 80% reduction in maintenance costs. 

Short iterations ensure that your analytics platform is constantly aligned with the needs of your business. With automation, you can respond to changes quickly and efficiently, make updates easily and solve problems in minutes that once took days or weeks.

This is what you get:

Nothing to hide, with every corner of
the system visible for inspection

With the intelligent execution engine of Discovery Hub®, you get speed, agility and optimized performance that includes the parallel execution of multiple tasks 

Discovery Hub® supports multiple dedicated environments for development, testing and production. This ensures the production environment is always online and available, facilitating automatic version control as well as fully automated documentation of all environments
