Abstract

This paper presents the meta-morphing model and its practical application in an industry strength business intelligence solution. The meta-morphing model adds associations between measures and dimensions to a traditional multi-dimensional cube model, and thus facilitates a process where users are able to ask questions to a business intelligence (BI) system without the constraints of a traditional system. In addition, the model will learn the user’s presentation preferences and thereby reduce the number of interactions needed to present the answer. The nature of meta-morphing means that users can ask questions that are incomplete and thereby experience the system as a more intuitive platform than state-of-art.
