The Multi-dimensional Data Modeling Toolkit represents over 15 years of hands-on experience developing multidimensional analytic applications for over a dozen companies in a variety of application areas. Written in a tutorial style, this book gives, in plain English, a step-by-step development of the defining principles of OLAP analysis through the lens of the programming language at the heart of Oracle's OLAP database option. You will find this book packed with examples, tricks and techniques, concrete illustrations of the programming elements needed to implement. The basics will all be there as well as advanced techniques that you can use to address the most demanding requirements. OLAP will be addressed as an analysis platform. You will learn how to make business intelligence applications smarter by upping the analytical octane. You will learn both the classic applications of OLAP analysis as well as more exotic approaches. You will learn where OLAP fits in among other analytical approaches such as statistics and data mining. So whether you are a developer wanting to learn Oracle's counterpart to Microsoft's MDX, or an analyst wanting to understand the quantitative possibilities of OLAP, The Multi-dimensional Data Modeling Toolkit will show you what you need to know to go from beginner to expert in the application of OLAP analytics with Oracle OLAP DML.

". . . one of the definitive books of our industry. If you take the time to read only one professional book, make it this book." -W. H. Inmon One of the most dramatic new developments in database design, the dimensional data warehouse is a powerful database model that.significantly enhances managers' ability to quickly analyze large, multidimensional data sets. Written by the leading proponent of this revolutionary new approach, this valuable book/CD toolkit outfits you with all the nuts-and-bolts information you need to design, build, manage, and use dimensional data warehouses for virtually any type of business application, as well as software for querying dimensional data warehouses. Employing many real-life case studies of data warehouses, Ralph Kimball provides clear-cut guidelines on how to model data and design data warehouses to support advanced multidimensional decision support systems. Beginning with the relatively simple example of a data warehouse for a grocery store, he progresses, step-by-step, through an increasingly complex array of business applications in retail, manufacturing, banking, insurance, subscriptions, and airline reservations. By the end of the book, you will have mastered the full range of powerful techniques for creating, controlling, and navigating dimensional business databases that are easy to understand and navigate. On the CD-ROM you'll find: * Software for querying dimensional data warehouses. * Working models of all the databases described in the book.
