Prepare

Create multiple prepared sources from the “raw” or base sources extracted in the Connect step. Merge tables from multiple raw sources to efficiently manage your report data, especially when you have different uses for the same tables. Experiment with data transformations, and track or undo your changes in the transformation pipeline.

Relate

If you need to build a report using data from multiple sources that can’t be merged, the Relate step uses standard database joins on measures and attributes to set up relationships between the data sources you’ve imported and prepared, as well as raw data sources.

Network

Network BI helps you create consistent, trusted metrics.  Business users can share, connect to, and blend their data to organically build up data connections, reports and dashboards. Additionally, Birst Admins can share centrally curated data with business users who can then connect to and blend their own personal data with it.  Network BI elegantly solves the data silos problem.  It brings your entire organization on the same page, to confidently make business decisions on trusted insights.
