To get more value from large stores of corporate business information, many organizations are employing new multidimensional analysis techniques to turn their raw data into actionable intelligence.  These techniques— including online analytical processing (OLAP) and dimensionally aware relational schemas — help organizations make the most of their available data.


By consolidating summarized corporate information from volumes of heterogeneous data and presenting this data to users in a meaningful business context, multidimensional analysis offers great potential for improving and coordinating decision-making across the enterprise. Read this paper to discover how companies are leveraging multidimensional analysis to improve performance by:

  • Presenting complex data in business terms that are easy to understand.

  • Helping people stay on top of changing business conditions — market shifts, mergers and acquisitions — and providing trending analysis.

  • Reducing the burden on IT by providing self-service access to corporate information.

  • Employing efficient, scalable technology that is quickly refreshed with current data.
