BIIIG : Enabling Business Intelligence with Integrated Instance Graphs

5th International Workshop on Graph Data Management (GDM 2014)

2014 / 03



We propose a new graph-based framework for business intelligence called BIIIG supporting the flexible evaluation of relationships between data instances. It builds on the broad availability of interconnected objects in existing business information systems. Our approach extracts such interconnected data from multiple sources and integrates them into an integrated instance graph. To support specific analytic goals, we extract subgraphs from this integrated instance graph representing executed business activities with all their data traces and involved master data. We provide an overview of the BIIIG approach and describe its main steps. We also present initial esults from an evaluation with real ERP data.
