OLAP is not new but until recently was reserved for Big Companies and huge servers. In the age of NoSQL, data scientists and Hadoop we will look at Saiku and Mondrian – open source online analytical processing server. It turns out we can easily implement fascinating interactive reports and charts using familiar relational databases. Aggregation, filtering and visualization was never simpler. No more handcrafted reports and impatient customers.

During this session we will learn how to build simple yet powerful data warehouse from real life sample – and with real life experience. Thus we will focus on data loading process, optimizing and customizing the engine. I have a feeling that most of you will leave the room with a desire to build their very own data warehouse right away.
