Method and System for Secure transmission of Customer Data between Customers and a Hosted Business Intelligence (BI) Service Provider

Disclosed is a method and system for securely transmitting customer data between customers and a hosted Business Intelligence (BI) service provider. While transmitting the customer data between customer sites and a hosted BI server, anonymous values are used for the customer data. The anonymous values are used based on a metadata model created for delivering a service report. Before delivering the service report to the customer sites, deanonymization is performed on the service report.

Fig. 1A and Fig. 1B illustrate the method and system for using anonymous values for customer data while transmitting the customer data between customer sites and a hosted BI server. Fig. 1A illustrates the scenario of service delivery between a customer site and the hosted BI server and Fig. 1B illustrates the scenario of the service delivery between multiple customer sites and the hosted BI server. To transmit the customer data from a customer site to the hosted BI server, a BI application which provides the service on the hosted BI server is analyzed for requirements of the BI application. Additionally, a metadata model is developed for transmitting the customer data.
