What is Data Warehouse? Explain in brief. Compare OLTP and OLAP. Explain OLAP operation: Roll-Up, Drill-Down, Dice, Slice, Pivot. Draw and explain lattice of cuboid for sales data of All Electronics. And the dimension are time, item, location and supplier. Briefly compare the following concepts. You may use example to explain points. (a) Snowflake schema, Star schema and Fact Constellation Schema. Suppose that a data warehouse for Big University consists of the following four dimensions: student, course, semester and instructor and two measures: count and avg_grade. When at the lowest conceptual level (eg. For a given student, course, semester and instructor combination), the avg_grade measure stores the actual course grade of the student. At higher conceptual levels, avg_gradde stores the average grade for the given combination. (a) Draw a snowflake schema diagram for the data warehouse. (b) If u create cube for the same then count how many cuboids will this cube contain including base and apex cuboid. Explain Data Generalization and Concept Description. Explain Attribute Oriented Induction with Example Write & Explain Apriori algorithm for discovering frequent itemsets for mining Boolean Association Rules. Explain Market Basket Analysis with example. A database has nine transactions. Let min_sup=2 and min confidence=70%. Then from figure1 (a) Find all frequent itemsets using apriori algorithm (b) Find all of the strong association rules. How to improve the efficiency of apriori algorithm.
