Local BusinessIntelligencePlus installation

BusinessIntelligencePlus can be used from DVelop's cloud or locally in our own environment. To install it locally you will need the following requirements:

  • A computer where virtualization enabled 
  • Virtual Box 5 Setup
  • The virtual machine (.vdmk file) that is provided with your BusinessIntelligencePlus license

Once you have accomplished the previous requirements, you should follow these steps:

Step 1

Execute Virtual Box setup in order to install it.

Step 2

Download the virtual machine .vdmk file.

Step 3

Create a new Virtual Box machine and set a name, type, and version as follows:

LocalBIImg1

Select the .vdmk downloaded in the previous step:

LocalBIImg2

Step 4

Set up the network settings as follows:

LocalBIImg3

LocalBIImg4

Step 5

Start the virtual machine and you will visualize an IP address:

LocalBIImg5

Important comment: when running the virtual machine, a services layer is created in order to interact with BusinesIntelligencePlus's engine. This IP should be reachable from the computer where GeneXus is running(in order to create cubes) and from the server where the application is deployed (in order to query and visualize the created cubes)

Step 6

Create the cube as explained in Create a new cube by using the IP provided on the previous step and your username/password:

LocalBIImg6

The designed cube will be created locally in the virtual machine. This means, that the cube structure, its metadata, and the data loaded into the cube will be stored in the virtual machine.
