OLAP and Business Intelligence Tutorials

I. Download Free OLAP Software

PARIS Technologies  features a set of exercises designed to introduce you to the fundamentals of OLAP by using step-by-step procedures to create an OLAP model.
 
These example steps use PARIS’s OLAP product PowerOLAP, but you’ll find that the concepts of CubesDimensions,  Slices,  multidimensionality, etc., that are demonstrated using PowerOLAP are representative of OLAP in general.

To follow these exercises download PowerOLAP:

Free OLAP Business Intelligence Software
Once installed, follow the tutorials below.

You can also follow the PowerOLAP Quick Start Exercises and access other related videos on the PARISTech TV YouTube Channel

*One additional note about these Quick Start exercises: these steps explain how to construct a model by working entirely with the PowerOLAP product’s “modeler.” Note that—especially if you are an administrator or power user—you will not build Cubes (business models) only by these steps. Instead, many Cube features (Meta Data) and the actual figures you work with (Fact Data) will likely come from another source and will therefore be built by using an integration capability (OLAP Exchange®, in PowerOLAP) to reach logic in, for example, and ERP or general ledger package.  That said, the concepts and the steps covered in these pages and videos should be very helpful as they convey how to use, customize and advance your OLAP models. These skills, in turn, will enable you to vastly increase the potential business uses and benefits of using an OLAP modeling tool like PowerOLAP at your firm.
