Users can now add custom scripts to components. For example, add indexes or update statistics using t-sql scripts. Built components will include the provided custom script. By storing customization along with project metadata deployment, modifications, and ongoing maintenance are further simplified.

LeapFrogBI is a SaaS metadata driven ETL platform. At no time does LeapFrogBI connect directly to either the source or the destination systems. Therefore, the first step in building a data mart is to provide metadata to LeaFrogBI in the form of a profile (SSIS package). This profile is then parsed and required information extracted. It […]
The new f9001 component automates deletion of records from a fact table. Simply select the fact table to effect and a source to inner join to the fact table. Apply any required filters and all matched records will be deleted from the target fact table.
There is a wealth of data available via REST API much of which is publicly available. LeapFrogBI simplifies and automates the process of extracting data from these sources. Step 1: Create REST Stage Component s9501 will create a package which will collect REST API sourced data based on a configuration file’s definitions. Create a stage component […]
There is a wealth of data available via REST APIs much of which is publicly available. LeapFrogBI simplifies and automates the process of extracting data from these sources. Simply fill out a configuration file, build a stage component (s9501), and execute the LeapFrogBI created package. Stage Using Rest API
After deploying a LeapFrogBI solution, then next step is to execute the built components in the correct order. A solution which handles the required precedence conditions can now be downloaded directly from the deployment page. Precedence Solution
I get asked on occasion to quantify the efficiency that LeapFrogBI offers. Below are a few measures that were collected on a recently completed data mart project. Developers: 2 with some data warehousing experience LeapFrogBI Experience at Project Start: None Dimensions: 21 (11 exposed for reporting & 10 for ETL only) Fact Tables: 6 (1 […]
