Come join two leading experts for a discussion on dimensional modeling in Oracle’s two leading multi-dimensional database offerings: Oracle OLAP and Oracle Essbase. Oracle OLAP is built into the Oracle database and exposes data through SQL. Oracle Essbase has a rich history with Hyperion and Arbor Software and has a series of applications for multi-dimensional analysis. Both Oracle OLAP and Oracle Essbase can be used with OBIEE (as well as other tools). Which one is right for your situation? This talk will pick up where the presentation “Oracle Essbase and Oracle OLAP: A Guide to Oracle’s Multidimensional Solution” ends.
This roundtable discussion will start with a focus on ways of working with time dimension(s?) in Oracle OLAP and Essbase. We will then use this as a springboard for discussions on topics of interest to the audience. Come armed with your own topics to “Ask the Experts”.
