What is a Metrics Layer?
A metrics layer is a centralized repository that holds key business metrics and definitions. This layer “sits” between BI tools, the computation layer, and data storage – wrapping these spaces with semantic information. It’s a source of truth for any and all data analysis throughout the enterprise.
Powerful Metrics Design
