TARGIT Data Service enables an end-user to consume data from a wide variety of data sources and combine them with other data without knowing about data types and complicated query languages, we call these combinations for cubes.
Users of TARGIT Data Service will notice that there is very little effort needed when it comes to keeping the data in the cubes up-to-date since one of the key points of the design is to make solution that feels alive to the users accessing the cubes.
TARGIT Data Service is not meant to be a replacement for a traditional BI solution, but rather be the add-on that gives business analysts and other user types with basic understanding of data structures a tool to instantly deploy company-wide solutions in a collaborative spirit.
A data source is the building stone of a cube. TARGIT supports a wide range of data.
A format is a way of presenting the data from a data source in a different perspective, this includes unpivoting data, adding calculations, stripping out spaces and more than a hundred other functions. The syntax for the formulas are similar in nature and functionality to Excel®.
A cube is where data is joined with other data sources making it possible to compare different datasets in a dimensional model.
