over time I noticed that the need to configure the olap data model caused some confusion to
users (especially the ones that do not use this feature); moreover, the definition of dimensions,
facts and schemas is currently widespread over several components (whose boundaries don't
match very well with the domains for business intelligence) and this makes more difficult
to understand the bi data model. After the migration I am proposing here we will have all
the bi data model in one place (the bi component).
