Overview Recently, there has been a great deal of discussion in the trade press and elsewhere regarding the coexistence of so-called transaction databases with decision support systems. These discussions usually revolve around the argument that the physical design required for acceptable performance of each is incompatible and that therefore, data should be stored redundantly in multiple enterprise databases: one for transaction processing, and the other for decision support type activities… 

Extending Groupware for OLAP: Where Did My Time Go?

An overview and discuss some of the implementation details of a system that transforms groupware Calendaring & Scheduling data into a relational OLAP database optimised for these kinds of analytical applications.

On-Line Analytical Processing

On-line analytical processing (OLAP) describes an approach to decision support, which aims to extract knowledge from a data warehouse, or more specifically, from data marts, so that they are able to interactively generate ad hoc queries without the intervention of IT professionals.

BUILDING OLAP TOOLS OVER LARGE DATABASES

A prototype containing a group of features that are recommended to be implemented in on-line analytical processing (OLAP) tools, for analyzing stored data with quality is presented, which can be implemented on any database system.

The COMET Metamodel for Temporal Data Warehouses

The COMET model is proposed which allows to represent not only changes of transaction data, as usual in data warehouses, but also of schema, and structure data, and can be used as basis of OLAP tools which are aware of structural changes and permit correct query results spanning multiple periods and thus different versions of dimension data.

Proxy-server architectures for OLAP

This paper proposes an architecture for OLAP cache servers (OCS), an OCS is the equivalent of a proxy-server for web documents, but it is designed to accommodate data from warehouses and support OLAP operations, and is complementary both to existingOLAP cache systems and distributed OLAP approaches.

Should Data Structures Look Flat for End Users?

An online experiment among end users with varying analytical expertise for an empirical examination on how data should be structured for presentation is conducted.

Semi-Structured Information Warehouses: Requirements and Definition

The vision of what a semistructured information warehouse should be is exposed, by identifying a set of requirements throughout an example scenario, and the emergence of XML means the convergence of these two approaches, making possible the development of warehouses for semi-structured information.

Online Analytical Processing

The main idea is providing navigation through data to non-expert users, so that they are able to interactively generate ad-hoc queries without the intervention of IT professionals.
