INTRODUCTIONOLTP and OLAP systems are transaction and analytical systemsrespectively. They are the branches of information systems. OLTP systems aretransaction based systems which provide the source data and OLAP systems areanalytical system which are used to analyze the data. Here in OLTP systems, atransaction is a logical task which must be finished of aborted, in this case,intermediate states are not accepted. An analytical system is capable of analyzinglarge amounts of data. OLTP systems are used to handle large amounts of shortonline transactions. The operations performed by a OLTP system are insert, updateand delete. OLTP systems maintain data integrity and they also provide fast queryprocessing in environments having multiple access. Transactions per seconddetermine the efficiency of this system. The current and detailed data is stored as anentity model in this type of system usually 3NF. The databases in this type of a systemmostly contain transactional data. OLAP systems have low number of transactionwhen compared to a OLTP system. OLAP systems store historical data. The responsetime determines the efficiency of this system. Queries from this type of systems aremore complex. Data mining techniques also use OLAP application. These systemsstore data in a star schema in their databases.DEFINITION OF OLAPOLAP is computer processing that enables a user to easily and selectivelyextract and view data from different points of view. In other words OLAP is a term thatdescribes a technology that uses a multi dimensional view of aggregate data toprovide quick access to strategic information for the purpose of advanced analysis. Tofacilitate this kind of analysis, OLAP data is stored in a multidimensional database.Whereas a relational database can be thought of as two-dimensional, amultidimensional database considers each data attribute as a separate "dimension."OLAP software can locate the intersection of dimensions and display them.
