Description

The main objective of this material is for students to understand both the structure of the business intelligence system and what it is used for through interactive graphs and animations. It covers the topics of Data warehouses and Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) within Business Intelligence systems.

Given the multidimensional component of OLAP systems it is a difficult concept for students to understand and these interactive graphs and animations help them to fully understand these concepts in an entertaining way. Finally students will be able to see the effect of these systems on real businesses.
