In computing, a data warehouse (DW or DWH), also known as an enterprise data warehouse (EDW), is a system used for reporting and data analysis, and is considered a core component of business intelligence (BI).
DWs are central repositories of integrated data from one or more disparate sources. They store current and historical data in one single place that are used for creating analytical reports for workers throughout the enterprise.

Luware uses ETL (Extraxt, transform, load) procedures to provide reporting data "ready to use" for any provided (product-specific) reporting templates.


Enterprise Resource Planning.


In computing, extract, transform, load (ETL) is the general procedure of copying data from one or more sources into a destination system which represents the data differently from the source(s) or in a different context than the source(s).
The ETL process became a popular concept in the 1970s and is also used in Luware reporting data warehouses.

Not ready reason

Not Ready Reasons (NRR) can be used when you are not able to handle service calls, for example because you want to take a break or have to attend a training course. If the Skype for Business status of an agent changes to e.g. 'Absent', the system asks for a 'Not ready' reason. The reason for absence has to be selected here.

Session Border Controller (SBC) is a network element deployed to protect SIP based Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) networks.

Early deployments of SBCs were focused on the borders between two service provider networks in a peering environment.
