Segments

Use segments to define the transaction table used in cost model and budget model hierarchy.

You can modify the default segments offered by the application. Additionally, you can create new segments based on your requirement. If segments are enabled for cost allocation or budgeting, they will be available during building hierarchy of cost/budget model.

Note: For Helsinki/Geneva customers, this is replacement of IT datamart dimension.
