MetaMiner is an invaluable addition to our BI suite. I can no longer imagine using BusinessObjects without it. There are at least a dozen use-cases for which I use MetaMiner on a regular basis. The company's technical support is excellent.

Data is the lifeblood of our business and Infolytik Pulse tells us exactly how well our BI systems are performing in real are performing time.

MetaMiner has transformed how The Texas A&M University System administers Business Objects. Since installing MetaMiner, we have gained insight into how our customers use interact with Business Objects on a daily basis. In turn, that information has allowed us to adjust how we support both content and delivery of information.

Impact Analysis:
Database & Reports

Perhaps the most often requested feature of SAP BusinessObjects: What is the downstream impact from changing the REVENUE_1 column? What universe/reports will be affected if we drop the DEMOG_OLD table?

Not knowing these answers cost us tens of thousands in added project costs to manual trawl for this information. MetaMiner? 10 seconds.

Server Down!

It’s not what we like to hear, but it does happen. Instead, get notified immediately when the status of a server changes or when a specific metric crosses a particular threshold. Are your Job Servers running beyond capacity? MetaMiner knows!

Visual Diff: Structure

Side-by-side comparisons of your CMS folder and content view allows architects and administrators to immediately resolve reconciliation issues that are otherwise impossible to find.

MetaMiner’s Architecture

1. MetaMiner Server
This component is the primary back-end of the MetaMiner environment that’s responsible for aggregating key platform metrics and processing BI asset metadata
2. BI Environment
Both SAP Business Objects XI3.0, XI3.1 and SAP BI 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2 are supported by the MetaMiner server. Using the MetaMiner Administrator tool, users are asked to identify the Central Management Server and Audit Database locations of their environment. It is from these two key components that the MetaMiner engine can perform its platform analysis
3. MetaMiner Repository
All metadata and platform metrics are stored in near-real-time to the MetaMiner Database. You may see this referred to as the “MMDB” in documentation or other Infolytik literature. The database itself can be currently hosted on Oracle, MS SQL Server or Infolytik’s embedded database, H2. The ability to use these flavors for your MMDB depends on your MetaMiner edition and license type.
4. MetaMiner Administrator
During the initial setup of MetaMiner, you must launch this application in order to provide a valid license key, identify initial environment(s) and establish and test required connectivities (MetaMiner Database and BI environments). The Administrator can also be used to configure the Diagnostic Center settings which allow MetaMiner to deliver system notifications and events to email addressed as needed.
5. MetaMiner Client
The client application is a high-performance, light-weight platform analysis solution that provides instant discovery of metadata and metrics across any number or version of SAP BI environments. For more information on its specific capabilities you can follow this link.
