Reporting And Analytics Aggregates

Also known as RAA. An optional Genesys Info Mart process that creates and populates predefined aggregation tables and views within an Info Mart database. RAA aggregation tables and views provide the metrics that summarize contact center activity to facilitate reporting, and serve as the primary source of data for the GI2 and Genesys CX Insights reports. RAA is required for GI2 and Genesys CX Insights environments.

Genesys Interactive Insights

Also known as GI2. A presentation layer that extracts data from the Genesys Info Mart database, and presents it in readable reports to enable business and contact center managers to make better business decisions for streamlining operations, reducing costs, and providing better services.

For Genesys Cloud customers, depending on the release of Genesys Cloud that you are using, historical reporting is available through either the Genesys Interactive Insights (GI2) interface, or through Genesys CX Insights.

Overview: What is GI2 All About?

Genesys Interactive Insights (GI2) uses the data stored in a Genesys Info Mart database and presents that data in readable reports to enable business and contact center managers to make better business decisions for streamlining operations, reducing costs, and providing better services. This page provides an overview of the relationships between the components that are required for GI2 operation:

Presentation Layer for Genesys Info Mart

BI Architecture Using GI2

GI2 is the presentation layer that Genesys has designed for the business-like interpretation of source data that is collected and stored by Genesys Info Mart. GI2 for Genesys Info Mart provides a universe of over 600 defined agent-, agent-session-, campaign-, and queue-type measures and over 40 reports that summarize contact center activity. This functionality is delivered with the power of SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform (BI) 4.x. The figure BI Architecture Using GI2 illustrates how the components that contribute to GI2 operation fit together. Refer to the Genesys Interactive Insights Universe Guide for detailed information about the Genesys-provided reports and measures.

Genesys Info Mart

GI2 pulls data directly from the Info Mart database; no other Genesys products are required in order for the GI2 reports to be scheduled, maintained, opened, and run. Only the Genesys Info Mart RDBMS (with RAA), and SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform (BI) software, must be in operation. However, from a practical standpoint, the Info Mart database should also be populated regularly with meaningful data that is sourced from contact center activities that are directed, monitored, and recorded by a number of Genesys products. The Genesys Info Mart Server extracts, transforms, and loads contact center data into fact tables at the most atomic, interaction level—enabling maximum flexibility of data interpretation. This low level of detail is good for tracking, verifying, and determining the contributing grains, but such detail is rarely useful for reporting and analysis of the performance of various contact center resources over a span of time, even as little as an hour.

The Reporting and Analytics Aggregates (RAA) engine—an optional Genesys Info Mart component that is mandatory for GI2 operation—compiles data from these fact tables and stores it within several aggregate views, based on the appropriate aggregation level (subhour [i.e., 30-minute], hour, day, and month) and type of data (disposition or interval). Refer to the Genesys Interactive Insights User’s Guide for information about these measure types. Use of these aggregates drastically improves query performance when you run the GI2 reports.

The Info Mart schema was updated significantly in the Genesys Info Mart 8.x releases to enable measurement of threaded interactions, among other features. The GI2 8.x universe and reports reflect the changes and function properly when they are paired with an Info Mart that is based on the appropriate Genesys Info Mart 8.x schema. The table Interoperability of Software Components provides this mapping of GI2 release to Genesys Info Mart schema. Refer to the Genesys Interactive Insights Universe Guide for a list of the underlying Genesys Info Mart source tables of each GI2 report, as well as either:

GI2 supports the generation of reports from Genesys Info Mart data sources that are managed by the following RDBMSs:

  • PostgreSQL 9.3.
  • Oracle 11g and 12c.
  • Oracle 11g RAC.
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and 2012.

Refer to the Genesys Interactive Insights page in the Genesys Supported Operating Environment Reference Guide for additional information about support and the Genesys Interoperability Guide for the minimum required releases of the necessary components.

SAP BusinessObjects

Components of the BI Architecture

SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform (BI 4.1) is the business intelligence software that powers GI2 8.5. The tools that are furnished within these software suites enable you easily and quickly to produce meaningful results, and provide analysis for more effective decision making. A full BI installation contains all of the components shown in the Figure Components of the BI Architecture.

Deploying GI2

To use GI2 you must perform, at minimum, two independent installations. A third independent installation is required if you choose to install BI software apart from the installation of GI2:

Unlike most other Genesys products, the GI2 application is not configured within Configuration Server.

User Accounts and Security

User accounts pertinent to GI2 are actually configured in several environments. To work in GI2, ensure that your accounts are configured as follows:

  • Info Mart database users—These users must have necessary permissions to link the GI2 universe with a data source (your Info Mart database). This includes the ability to configure information that is stored in an internal BusinessObjects database as an attribute of the GI2 universe (including the following Info Mart database connectivity parameters: driver type, server name, database name, and user name).
  • Genesys Info Mart users—These users must have access to Genesys Info Mart Manager and be familiar with operation of general Genesys Info Mart functionality. This access enables you to manage the aggregation process that relies on Genesys Info Mart internal processes. The aggregation engine (RAA) is driven by Job_AggregateGIM, a job that is managed by the Genesys Info Mart Scheduler and is accessible thru the Genesys Info Mart Manager.
  • GI2 users—These are actually SAP BI 4.1 user accounts, and must have rights to manage GI2 objects and corresponding BI objects, including the ability to:
    • Use Web Intelligence, create, delete, and edit reports, and view the underlying SQL.
    • Schedule reports and save them in other formats, such as PDF and Microsoft Office Excel.
