SQL Server (Sydney) Users Group meeting has been moved to Monday 6th November
2006 when Richard Lees will present “OLAP, what is it good for?”

Richard will show the insides (and outsides) of an OLAP cube created to assist
in monitoring and managing a 6 node Oracle RAC database that sustains 600
transactions per second from 30,000 online users. Richard will go through the
early prototypes, development cycle and design considerations for the cube,
which has 12 measure groups, dozens of measures, and dozens of hierarchies. The
demonstration will also look into the transformation package that incrementally
loads the cube, Excel access and the RS reports available to the masses. This
cube is an effective demonstration of the value in having complex data in a
cube. All the data in the cube is available to guru DBAs from base tables. But
without the cube, getting this information is time consuming and error prone.

Richard Lees
is a well known Microsoft expert in the large database and
business intelligence fields. He is the author of ThinSlicer, the first publicly
available thin client cube browser, which is used by companies around the world.
