A Patterns Based Approach for Solving Your Data Integration Challenges
Biml is the operating system for business intelligence. It is a domain specific language that describes BI artifacts: tables, SSAS databases, ETL, and more. The XML tag system provides for the expressiveness of the language, but the true power comes from the native ability to integrate .NET libraries in the generation of Biml objects. This is called BimlScript. With just a few lines of .NET code, C# or VB.NET, you can connect to a database, web service or Excel workbook and use that metadata to drive the generation of your BI artifacts. As an architect, I find Biml indispensable for delivering consistent, repeatable, cost-effective BI solutions.
