1 M2 Overview (DESKI) Data Quality Course

2 2 M2 Overview  Objectives: Utilize M2 data dictionary Navigate BOXI environment Customize InfoView preferences Use DESKI Retrieve corporate documents and use them Utilize M2 Slice and Dice capabilities Save, Open, Modify and Export M2 Files Describe process for creating ad-hoc queries in M2

3 3  Enter the following URL in your web browser window: https://tma-bi.csd.disa.milhttps://tma-bi.csd.disa.mil For convenience, you can create a shortcut on your desktop.  Right click on desktop.  Click on ‘New’ and then ‘Shortcut’.  Type in the location of the item: https://tma-bi.csd.disa.mil.https://tma-bi.csd.disa.mil  Click on ‘Next’.  Type in a name for the shortcut, something like “BOXI”.  Click ‘Finish’.  Logging on: be cautious with your CAC PIN 3 Strikes rule for entering your PIN! Raise your hand for help if you’ve had two warnings! Using M2

4 4 REMINDER! At work or in class... Never leave a workstation unlocked When logged into M2! Business Objects

5 5 M2 Data Dictionary  Spreadsheet format One tab per data file  Describes overall content; timing  List of all data elements Definition Valid Values Format Example Notes & Caveats  Updated monthly  Very important for correct reports!

6 6 Table of contents Hyperlinked

7 7 Header Information Location Update Cycle Record Description Source

8 8 Objects listed in same order as in M2 Definition, Format, List of values

9 9  Let’s open the M2 DD 1.Google “BEA M2” 2.Click the top result 3.Right-click “M2 Data Dictionary”, select “Save Target As…” and save to your Desktop M2 Data Dictionary

10 10 Using the DD Effectively  Don’t forget to update the DD each month  Review definitions prior to using objects in a query  Be sure to compare values across files Objects with the same name sometimes have different meanings and value sets

11 11 Using M2  M2 Accounts: , option 7 (DHSS - M2) (gets routed to M2  DB2 Database Files are not generally integrated  Business Objects Software Client-server GUI-Interface (Structured Query Language) Analysis Capability  SQL: You pick the data elements you want to see And the filters you want to use SQL summarizes data per your instructions

12 12  BOXI - Full BO product suite for M2 reporting  BO – Older version of BO used for M2  InfoView – Portal where WEBI, WEBI RC, DESKI, documents are viewed and shared  WEBI – Web based application  WEBI RC – Web based application that requires a client installation on workstation  DESKI – Full client based application that requires an installation on workstation Definitions

16 16 Corporate Documents  Corporate Documents are M2 Reports Written by “Super Users” Intended to be used by a wide audience Very helpful for new users Prompted filters vs. all MTFs already run

17 17  Slice and Dice Wonderful tool in M2 Allows you to manipulate data without re-running After your results are returned, use slice and dice to:  Rearrange  Filter  Sort  Remove data elements  Insert calculations  Link objects Using M2

18 18 Now let’s try a corporate document! Hit File Retrieve From Corporate Documents

19 19 What Next?  Can hit save Creates a “.rep” file; can be re-run later  Can hit “edit / copy all” to put on clipboard Can easily paste into spreadsheet software WYSIWYG; keeps your changes  Can use “export” button (blue Rubik’s Cube toolbar button) to Export entire raw data cube that does not contain your changes made in Slice and Dice, text formatting, increase or decrease decimal, etc…  Can also use M2 to further analyze, rearrange, etc…  Slice and Dice Edit / Copy All, Paste in Excel

20 20 Building Ad Hoc Reports in M2

21 21 Blank M2 Screen Functionality is greyed out when it can’t be used “New File” and “Open File” buttons look just like in regular Office products

22 22 Let’s build our first query Hit the File New button

23 23 M2 Query Panel List of files Results panel Conditions panel

24 24 Quick Review: Open and close boxes to the left Review file names Consider files described in earlier lecture

25 25  Simple to Use  Think of as “Enrollment File”  Open up DD  Record Description: Not really very descriptive Monthly tabulation of records from Relationship Detail By year, by month count of eligible beneficiaries with a special relationship in the MHS  See ACV Group Relationship Summary

26 26 TRICARE Prime Enrollment  How many Prime Enrollees in your: MTF? Parent MTF? Region? Multi-Service Market Area? Etc….  Identify needed data elements using data dictionary Enrollment Site, FY, FM, Enrollment Count ACV Group

27 27 Open Relationship Summary Find objects you want in your report and drag to “results panel”

28 28 M2 will only retrieve the objects you ask it to retrieve

29 29 Use conditions panel to limit data From entire world, to area of interest If I hit run now with no conditions………

30 30 Summary of All Records, Over All Time List of variables Data table

31 31 Assuming you didn’t want the whole world Hit button that looks like a query panel to modify the query

32 32 Query panel, But isn’t opened to the table you were using To modify, open up relationship summary and go from there

33 33 Limit to your area of interest by dragging data elements to filter on into conditions box

34 34 List of operators Click the one you want

39 39 Using M2  Using M2 is as simple as: Dragging and Dropping to give the computer instructions for your query; and Doing the dreaded WORD PROBLEM!  The software is easy! The word problem can be hard  WISDOM Course Focus on the word problem

40 40 Recap and What Next?  Congratulations; you have Written a basic query Used the M2 data dictionary Run an existing query Modified a query Saved a query Put query results in Excel!  Next Session: Practice your new skills!
