This session will describe why and how to create interactive OLAP applications using MySQL Enterprise and the Mondrian OLAP Engine.
A dimensional data model and an OLAP engine can empower your business users with the ability to interactively analyze business data in a self-service fashion.
Building these kinds of applications on MySQL Enterprise includes a number of design considerations relative to performance, security, and end-user access.
The session will also include mini case-studies on how organizations like Loma Linda University Healthcare, BNSF Logistics, and Unionfidi analyze and optimize their businesses using open source OLAP.
Finally, this presentation will include a brief overview and demonstration of Mondrian 3.0.
