Oracle OLAP is a world class multidimensional analytic engine embedded in Oracle Database 11g. Oracle OLAP cubes deliver sophisticated calculations using simple SQL queries – producing results with speed of thought response times. Take your data analysis to a new level with the latest Excel 2013 functionality, including slicers, sparklines, named sets and drill-through. Direct connectivity to live data means that you don’t have to load a static copy of your data into Excel or a mid-tier server. Critical Excel files are always up-to-date with your current enterprise data. As a client-side driver, it’s easy to deploy, cost effective and low maintenance. No additional mid-tier servers or add-ins are needed. No special training is required. If users are familiar with Microsoft Excel PivotTables, accessing Oracle data is the same as Excel connecting to any data source.
