Understanding Data Maps

Use data maps to move data, comments, attachments, and supporting detail from source cubes and smart lists to reporting cubes to consolidate data.

You can map dimensions between a source application database and a reporting database to enable:

  • Reporting on source application data in a reporting application

  • Aggregating and querying on Smart Lists, which are converted to regular dimensions in the reporting application

  • Linking application data to multiple reporting applications for various consolidations

  • Pushing data between Strategic Modeling and Planning (see Pushing Data Between Strategic Modeling and Planning Using Data Maps in Administering Planning Modules)
