ProtoMart 1.0 Beta

"The Data Mart Builder"

ProtoMart incorporates many features of its predecessor, Previewer 2.0. With Previewer, users could quickly define what a cube should look like in terms of Dimensions, Measures, and Allocation percentages at each level in the Dimension hierarchy. Generated data points could then be converted to cubes.

ProtoMart is a Windows based application that gives you the power to easily design and construct data marts.

Previewer 2.0

Previewer is a data modeling tool for demonstrating the power of the Cognos Business Intelligence tool 'PowerPlay'.

Cognos PowerPlay is the world's best-selling OLAP (online analytical processing) software. It enables users to explore large volumes of summarized data with sub-second response times in a Web, Windows, or Excel environment. With Cognos PowerPlay, users at any business or technical skill level in a company can perform their own multidimensional analysis, create reports, and share them for better decision-making.

Cognos PowerPlay draws information from relational databases to model and build PowerCubes ("Cubes"). Cubes are data sets with over 50 million consolidated rows of data and up to 500,000 categories (members). Business rules and calculations (for example, percentage growth and market share change) can be built right into them. Cubes and reports can be deployed to Web clients, or to Windows and Excel clients, all using the same application server.



Previewer will generate sample data with realistic fluctuations, based on an organization's specific metrics. This allows prospective PowerPlay users to see how their corporation's data might look with PowerPlay, and how PowerPlay can add value to their business.

Previewer is a product intended to shorten the sales cycle for COGNOS sales reps and COGNOS Value Added Resellers, as well as reducing the expenses associating with manually creating sample PowerPlay Cubes.
