Business Intelligence

The Business Intelligence infrastructure enables you to generate Unified Dimensional Models (UDMs) by using metadata from the Microsoft Dynamics AX relational data model. You can specify measures and dimensions in the Application Object Tree (AOT) to define online analytical processing (OLAP) cubes. Business Intelligence projects are used to customize, deploy and manage the cubes in SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS).
