Data Preparation Layer

Data Preparation Layer

The Data Preparation Layer of Live Data Gateway enables important data transformation steps, and provides a simplified semantic layer for business users to easily navigate data and be shielded from the complexities of the underlying data structures.  This semantic layer produces very strong benefits for both self-service analytics and self-service modelling.

Within the semantic layer, data views are created which define what data should be exposed, define measures and dimensions, manage data linking complexities, and rename data fields to meaningful business terms.  With these data complexities managed centrally, the end users of the semantic layer can quickly and easily build reports and visualizations, all while the strong data control and governance mechanism is protecting against inappropriate data access.
