What is OLAP Technology?
OLAP technology provides analysts, managers and executives
with a clear insight into enterprise data through fast, consistent
and interactive access. It provides a wide range of information
views that reflect the real dimensionality of the enterprise.
One of the most important features of the OLAP functionality
is its analytical and navigational capability applied to
multidimensional queries. This capability is facilitated
through the transformation of two-dimensional data into multidimensional
models or “cubes”.
These models allow end-users to drill up and down through
successive layers of detail to discover trends, relationships
O3 is implemented over the Internet in a multi-user client
server mode and consistently offers rapid responses to queries,
regardless of database size and complexity. O3 helps the
user to understand information through personalized viewing
and comparative analysis of enterprise data.
