Why Metadata in BI tools? [message #594617] Fri, 30 August 2013 22:02

Hi All,

I always had a doubt as....
1. Why metadata is used to build repositories in OBIEE(or BI tools?)? Is it just because to manage memory as metadata does not hold data physically and thus does not require too much space or some other reasons are also there. If so please share.
2. How does metadata communicate with the physical data in the database?

Thanks in Advance,
