To store business data, ]project-open[ uses a database which becomes the repository for all system content. This is the "warehouse" for all the electronically managed information. "Cubes" are reports that are extracted from this database that are placed into a pivot-table ("cube"), with configurable and manipulable axises that change the report format, allowing the user to "play" with the data. The "cube" allows the user to select and rotate the data in a manner, according to their column and row categorical selections, in order to form new reports by more selectively filtering the information.
