Data Manager picture


 Data Manager works by extracting operational data from multiple  sources, transforming and merging the data, then delivering the  transformed data to coordinated data marts. Data Manager can be  used to transfer data into single database tables and populate data  warehouse fact and dimension tables, and create aggregate fact  table. Data Manager integrates with other IBM Cognos Business  Intelligence products by delivering metadata to IBM Cognos  Framework Manager which allows target data warehouse and data  repositories to be modelled and used in IBM Cognos Business  Intelligence and Performance Management projects.
