QBX is a CASE tool for data mart design resulting from a close collaboration between academy and industry. It supports designers during conceptual design, logical design, and deployment of ROLAP data marts in the form of star/snowflake schemata, and it can also be used by business users to interactively explore project-related knowledge at different levels of abstraction. We will demonstrate QBX functionalities focusing on both forward and reverse engineering scenarios.
