Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PROCESSING BUSINESS INFORMATION FROM MULTIPLE ENTERPRISES
(FR) PROCEDE ET DISPOSITIF POUR TRAITER LES INFORMATIONS COMMERCIALES DE PLUSIEURS ENTREPRISES
Abstract
(EN)
A method for processing business information generated by multiple enterprises is provided. Initially, a data warehouse is provided that has the capability of holding business information. The data warehouse is populated with business information received from a first enterprise and a second enterprise. The business information is associated with the first and second enterprise based upon a set of standardized categories used in the data warehouse. Metastore information describing the organization of business information in the data warehouse is used to develop rules for extracting a portion of the business information from the data warehouse. This portion of business information extracted from the data warehouse is then stored in the data mart. Using at least one such data mart, a multiple dimension database is created wherein each dimension of the multiple dimension database corresponds to variables derived from business rules established in an industry. Using the multiple dimension database, metrics for measuring business performance from the multiple dimension databases are then generated.

L'invention concerne un procédé permettant de traiter les informations commerciales de plusieurs entreprises. Initialement, on établit un entrepôt de données commerciales. Cet entrepôt renferme les informations commerciales transmises par des première et seconde entreprises, lesdites informations étant associées aux entreprises respectives sur la base d'une série de catégories normalisées dans l'entrepôt. On utilise une information de méta-enregistrement décrivant l'organisation des informations commerciales dans l'entrepôt pour établir les règles propres à l'extraction d'une partie des informations considérées. Ensuite, la partie extraite est enregistrée dans un dépôt de données. En utilisant au moins un dépôt de ce type, on établit une base de données multidimensionnelle, où chaque dimension correspond à des variables résultant des règles commerciales en vigueur pour telle ou telle branche d'industrie. La base de données multidimensionnelle permet de fournir des paramètres relatifs à l'évaluation des performances commerciales.
