Flexera Analytics Data Models

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

FlexNet Manager Suite includes Flexera Analytics, a technology that enables you to create reports and to customize dashboards, either for your enterprise or for personal use.

When you create a report or dashboard, Flexera Analytics provides the following data models to choose as a data source:

  • Flexera Data Models
  • Flexera Asset Management Model

To help you use this data when customizing dashboards, widgets, and reports, Flexera Analytics provides relational model and a dimensional model that organize your asset-management data and define how the data relates to each another. Within the data models, folders organize and structure the data into subject-area categories. Each folder in the subject area contains two types of data: measures and attributes. Measures represent numbers and facts, and attributes represent categories of descriptive data. The following table describes the relational and dimensional models available and includes links to the data categories available in that model.

Data Source Description Used In
Flexera Relational Model A relational model organizes data using measures and attributes but uses a flat structure. There is no ability to drill up or drill down on units of data to see how other data relates to them. There are also some attributes and measures that are specific to the relational model, such as the Inventory subject area Flexera Asset Management Model

Flexera Data Models

Flexera Dimensional Model A dimensional model organizes data using measures and attributes but uses a hierarchy structure that enables you to drill up and drill down to see how data relates to other functionality. Flexera Data Models
Note: It is recommended that you use data from one data model or the other when creating widgets and dashboards. You need to keep this in mind and plan ahead before you begin to create a dashboard.
