LSI (Link Support Information) Designer
LSI Designer is a stand alone application used by system administrators to design and customize SN-Sphere ™ applications. It provides a number of key advantages:
Flexibility - Applications can be designed and changed over time without customized programming
Cost effectiveness - Internal IT personnel can be trained to use it, thus lowering costs (total cost of ownership)
Secure - No need to reveal methodology and data to external personnel
User Friendly - Maps the physical layer to a user friendly semantic layer used by all components of SN-Sphere. End users see names of entities, field names and all other data objects in their own language and terms.
LSI Designer is used to:
Create application specific entities - Define what tables contain attributes of each entity including lookup tables.
Design data forms for display and editing data by end users
Define a semantic layer over the physical layer for display purposes to end users and system administrators
Define what tables contain link support information (LSI) - any type of data that can be used to infer relevant relationships and associations between entities
Define Link Criteria (Licrits):
Licrits - Link Criteria
Link Criteria are one or more conditions used to
infer associations between entities. An application can include
definitions for any number of Licrits. An analysis model can contain one
or more LSI and one or more Licrit.
