What is Parameters?

Parameters are the simplest method for posing queries in BI applications. Most systems will present a list of parameters for users to choose from when asking questions of their data. Through guided menus, business users can easily request specific information.

While selecting from predetermined parameters is probably the easiest way to query data, it is also the least flexible. More advanced users will instead want to input their own custom queries.
