Dimension Extensions – Part 2 – Supporting User-Defined Custom Hierarchies In Central Datamarts

Presentation Summary

Centrally defined hierarchies often do not meet the needs of college units. Units often spend a lot of effort downloading central data to local systems so they can add their own hierarchies. What if you could provide users with the capability of defining their own custom hierarchies/groupings within the central datamart? Would they still need to download data? This presentation describes the Dimension Extension approach that gives individual users that kind of power. We will discuss the user experience in terms of creating and maintaining custom hierarchies, how to use the hierarchies in reports, as well as the technical underpinnings.
