Data integration architecture
This topic provides a brief architectural overview of data integration.
Data integration architecture has several layers. The following illustration shows roles and relationships between the source data and clients that use 规划服务器. The mission for data integration is to move data into the application database. After data is in the application database, clients will use that data. The illustration is followed with a description of related parts.

Data sources are stored as part of the business data of an organization. The data may come from the operational systems of the organization. Because operational systems contain raw data that is generally not in an appropriate format for analysis, you must first load data into a staging database. Then you can load it into the application database.
The process for bringing data from other sources into the staging database is a manual process that is not supported by 规划服务器.
PerformancePoint Planning Server Application Store
规划服务器 installs its own databases to contain the metadata for models and dimensions, and the system operations. It contains data structures for dimensions, hierarchies, and models that you can use for analysis and planning.
The staging database is a separate data cache (storage area) that allows business users of PerformancePoint Excel 加载项 to have continued access to application data. They have access even when data is being imported from various external sources and prepared for loading.
Data integration in 规划服务器 is the process of loading reference and fact data from the staging database into the application database. This process is more thoroughly described in Data integration process.
Clients that use the 规划服务器 application store include applications such as the following:
PerformancePoint Excel 加载项
SQL Server Reporting Services
These clients contribute to a complete Performance Management (PM) application and include the capability for business scorecarding, analytics, and planning.
