Here’s how it works
Operational Data Exchange
Connect to all corporate data sources in their raw form and structure.
Modern Data Warehouse
Consolidate multiple data sources and provide a cleansed, single source of the truth.
Shared Semantic Layer
Provide easy access to data relevant for a specific department or analytical purpose.
EASE OF USE
With the shared semantic layer, models are defined once within a drag-and-drop environment and automatically used to deliver data in the right form and context to PowerBI, Tableau and Qlik. It enables businesses to use the same language, definitions and values across the entire organization.
Create reports quickly in your preferred front-end application, whether it is Power BI, Qlik, Tableau, Excel or any other.
You retain the freedom to select any visualization, analytics or reporting tool you choose. Business leaders typically prefer to get automated dashboards and KPI’s in PowerBI, Tableau, Qlik or Excel to discover new business insights. Data scientists and analyst typically connect their preferred analytics tool to the ODX or MDW to access more raw data for data discovery.
It’s all about automation
Discovery Hub® is powered by TimeXtender’s revolutionary software. This software helps close the data to insight gap by automating all that can be automated in the data discovery life-cycle. With Discovery Hub®, you can accelerate data on-boarding, keep track of all your data, and auto-generate documentation that helps with regulatory compliance, i.e. GDPR.
