Viewing Decisions Data Mart Data

The Decisions Data Mart is a separate database from the Decisions database. It has an open schema and is available for use with any reporting/BI tool outside of the Decisions application. Imported history is synchronized with the Data Mart so that the latest history is always available for reporting. Users can publish their scenarios to the Data Mart for easy reporting across multiple scenarios as well as history.

Folders and Data Sources are utilized by the Data Mart in order to organize and secure the data. All scenario data that gets published is given a DataSource name by the user who is doing the publishing. It is used to find the specific data that has been added to the Data Mart. Permissions can be given to or removed from folders to allow or prevent specific users from seeing the data contained within the folder. Folders logically contain DataSources.

The Genesys Decisions Data Dictionary provides a concise and detailed description of the database views that are available to be used to generate reports on historical and scenario data. In order to obtain Data Dictionary contact Genesys Decisions Support.
