Why RDBMS fails …    2-D Structure Multiple Joins and Poor Performance Denormalized Databases Drain Performance & Resources 5 .

Enter OLAP ! 6 .

Consolidation  Pre-aggregation of all logical subtotals and totals Pre-compute totals by each possible subset in the set of dimensions  7 .

Basic Concepts      Dimensions Measures Positions Hierarchies Schemas .Star & Snowflake 8 .

More Features…     Formulae Calculations on the fly Drill Down & Roll Up Navigation through levels of detail Slicing & Dicing Pivot / Rotate Change Dimensional Orientation 9 .

Different forms of OLAP Three ways of storing data:    Multidimensional OLAP (MOLAP) Best Query Performance Relational OLAP (ROLAP) Ideal for large databases Hybrid OLAP (HOLAP) Best of both worlds! 10 .
