OLAP - Online Analytical Processing : Resource Guide

OLAP is an acronym for Online Analytical Processing. OLAP performs multidimensional analysis of business data and provides the capability for complex calculations, trend analysis, and sophisticated data modeling.

For example, a user can request that data be analyzed to display a spreadsheet showing all of a company's beach ball products sold in Florida in the month of July, compare revenue figures with those for the same products in September, and then see a comparison of other product sales in Florida in the same time period. 

Take a look at the following video for basic introduction about OLAP.

If you like to create your first OLAP cube using Microsoft server 2008 please refer to the video below.
