Cloud applications provided by Bizagi let you go beyond process execution to work with your data by exploring fields such as artificial intelligence (predictive analysis), by integrating reporting tools of your choice, and by creating portals that offer a richer user experience.
Datasets service is an application which lets you expose and save your Bizagi processes’ business information in the Cloud so you can use it for specific purposes like creating reports with third party tools or for AI analysis.
You can easily configure how and when this information is extracted from processes in Bizagi so your Dataset contain high-quality data that is final and reliable when consumed.
Using Datasets service
The Datasets service administration is the same as in any other Bizagi product, users with access to Business Insights and their permissions (owner or viewer at subscription level and owner or contributor at project level) are managed from the Customer Portal.
The following steps summarize how you can work with Datasets service:
1. Create a Dataset and define its data structure.
At this point you can choose to import initial data.
2. Connect Bizagi processes to the Dataset by means of a RESTful service.
Bizagi processes continuously feed the Dataset on a case-by-case basis.
3. Use the Dataset to run predictive analysis (via Bizagi Artificial Intelligence features) or create reports.
Configure the invocation by consuming information from an OData service endpoint.
Datasets service concepts
Consider these concepts behind how Datasets service works:
1. Datasets service stores business information in a denormalized manner.
Datasets service holds data in a single table-like structure (without relationships), the way a csv file does.
2. Datasets service has final information.
Datasets service lets you easily configure how and when information is extracted from business processes.
You make sure that data is final and that it doesn't need further preparation once it resides in the Dataset.
3. Dataset capacity.
There are no limits to the number of Datasets or Dataset environments you may create in an application.
Similarly, each Dataset or Dataset environment does not have a limit for the amount of data it can store.
However, bear in mind that Datasets service consumes storage from the total storage capacity supported by the performance tier of your enterprise Automation Service subscription.
