Creating Connections And Data Foundations
Creating a connection and a data foundation is the first step in a relational universe build. This session covers the different types of data sources accessed within IDT, the connection parameters and options, creating and modifying a data foundation as well as guidelines and tips for good data foundation design.
Creating Business Layers
The business layer of the universe is the user interface between users and databases. This session covers the design of the different components of a business layer including how a business layer takes advantage of the data foundation modeling. Creating queries, filters, parameters and advanced features will also be covered.
List Of Values, Universe Prompts, Cascading & Otherwise
The list of values and universe prompts are entities that can be authored, shared and reused across data foundation and business layer resources. The different types of list of values and its association with universe objects such as filters and Prompts will be covered in this session. Steps to create cascading prompts and navigation paths will also be covered.
Resolving Chasm Traps, Fan Traps & Using Outer Joins
This session covers the steps to resolve some common traps in a data foundation design and avoid incorrect query results. The IDT features to detect and solve loops will also be covered.
Everything You Need To Know About IDT: A Review
This session will be a recap of all the IDT features and functionalities. We will start with two report requirements and create a universe from start to finish using the techniques we have learned.
Data And Universe Security
Because universes can be used to centralize access to data sources that are sensitive, IDT also offers security capabilities to control access to these data sources. This session covers the different Security profiles and rights enforced by the BI platform and the objects access levels.
Working With Multiple Idt Developers: Project Synchronization
In some organizations, an entire team of designers may work together to create universes. To enable collaborative work and resource exchange, a shared project can be created in the CMS repository. This session covers the steps to create local projects and shared projects and how they can be used to share authored resources
Multiple Data Sources, Olap Data Sources , Sap Data Sources And Linked Universes
Because of the evolution of BusinessObjects releases over time, different types of connections exist in BI 4.x based on different components. This session covers the steps to create an IDT connection with OLAP data sources, SAP HANA, BW and other relational data sources and also the use of Linked Universes
