CDB aims to provide a central repository for your datasources, based on CDA. This central repository gives you the ability to explore, organize and store your data.
Its core functionality can be resumed in three main points:
Explore the cubes on a Data Warehouse, building queries by drag and drop.
Save those queries, organizing them neatly into groups and building you reusable data repository.
Use the resulting CDAs in your dashboards or link external tools to the data (for instance, easily have a R script consume data coming from your system).
