Re: Cross-workspace data link

Each customer has a Tenant and within this tenant, you can have multiple workspaces.  Within these workspaces, you can have multiple models which is essentially the application solving a business process (T&Q, FP&A, TPM, SPM, etc.).  The cross workspace data link I believe you are talking about is having one model in a workspace A being a source or a target of a model in workspace B.  The most prevalent example is a Data Hub (a model) in a workspace supplying data to any spoke model in a different workspace.  Why the different workspaces?  A couple of reasons, a typical workspace can only be 130 GB (excluding our HyperModels which can go up to 720 GB), so you have a finite amount of space.  Also, segregation of duties from a security standpoint.  You don't need all of your users being able to get into the Data Hub, only the people who manage it.

 

Hope this helps,

Ok, so it is basically the same import from model B to model A, except it is from another ws within the tenant.

Correct ?
