Online Analytical Processing/OLAP
OLAP performs multidimensional analysis of business data and provides the capability for complex calculations, trend analysis, and sophisticated data modeling. OLAP enables end users to perform ad hoc analyses of data in multiple dimensions, thereby providing the insight and understanding needed for better decision making.
Consider these benefits:
- Empower IT has been processing a vast number of highly customized OLAP/multi-dimensional cubes for more than 25 years.
- Empower IT brings a wealth of experience to the design of star and snowflake schemas that transform relational data tables into the cube metadata for Online Analytical Processing.
- Our business processes focus on the business information that end users want to extract from the cube so that the reporting and ad hoc query process is fluid and seamless.
- Empower IT is expert in creating the hierarchical views within the OLAP cube that intuitively guide end users to select the data for precisely the level they need to view.
- Empower IT’s consultative business processes ensure that within each dimension of the OLAP cube there is standardized searchable attribution. For example, the addition of state, zip code, marketing area, etc. to the individual locations within the geography dimension allows the end user to easily select “like” items to view within a report and create the custom aggregations needed to perform the analysis.
