Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to improve the traveling habits of clients using the SpaceTime system when arranging their travels. The improvement of traveling habits refers to lowering costs and emissions generated by the travels.

To do this, a business intelligence system, including an OLAP cube, were created to provide the clients with feedback on how they travel. This to make it possible to see if they are improving and how much they have saved, both in money and emissions. Since these kind of systems often are quite complex, studies on best practices and how to keep such systems agile were performed to be able to provide a system of high quality. During this project, it was found that the pre-study and design phase were just as challenging as the creation of the designed components.

The result of this project was a business intelligence system, including ETL, a Data warehouse, and an OLAP cube that will be used in the SpaceTime system as well as mock-ups presenting how data from the OLAP cube could be presented in the SpaceTime web-application in the future.
