Online Analytical Processing
Using the method of online analytical processing (OLAP) data and information are evaluated by means of a multidimensional analysis. Multidimensional implies that the applications for the evaluation of variables such as sales and marketing areas are located on different dimensions. The results of the analysis can be visualized as an OLAP cube. Here, the edges of the cube represent the attributes, such as product and country. Due to the cube representation, more than three used attributes, a so-called hyper-dimensional data cube, cannot be visualized.
