Well, it’s high time I got back to writing! It’s been a few years since we published “Oracle Essbase & Oracle OLAP: The Guide to Oracle’s Multidimensional Solution” and I must admit that as stressful a process as that was, it was a great adrenaline rush. My plan is to recap a few things for those who might be new to Essbase or OLAP or multi-dimensional data. So, if the post seems a bit basic, my apologies in advance. Still, I am amazed at the overuse of XL. The last, most recent abuse witnessed was a Big Ass Workbook (that’s a technical term) measuring nearly 97MB! Right, that’s an effective analytic approach… not.
Anyway, it’s good to be back…
