With ADAPT, you can focus on the business view of the information. You create a logical framework for transforming data into information. ADAPT enables you to create an OLAP application design blueprint, which allows you to:

  • Unordered List ItemPresent the design in a clear and understandable manner
  • Visualize complex business issues without getting mired in details
  • Determine business rules
  • Determine the relationships between objects
  • Define how derived data is created
  • Identify design flaws early, while they can still be fixed with little or no cost
  • Create a common basis for communication:
    • Among developers
    • Between developers and end users


Using a simple Visio stencil, you can create a blueprint of an OLAP system and validate the application design against the business requirements before you spend a lot of time on implementation details. For more background on ADAPT, read our white paper Getting Started with ADAPT (PDF).
