1 OLAP Services MicroStrategy Products MicroStrategy OLAP Services Delivers Economic Savings, Analytical Insight, and up to 50x Faster Performance MicroStrategy OLAP Services brings In-memory Business Intelligence to the MicroStrategy BI platform to significantly improve performance and analysis. MicroStrategy OLAP Services delivers the flexibility, speed, and analytical power of traditional, multidimensional cube analysis while preserving all the strengths of the unified MicroStrategy BI architecture for enterprise business intelligence. Additional analytical insight drives better business decisions, while seamless integration with an industrial-strength BI platform delivers considerable hardware, database, and administration savings. High Performance Successful businesses depend on swift analysis for optimal business decisions. Maintaining fast query performance and analytical interactivity is a dominant challenge for BI applications, especially those serving thousands of users. MicroStrategy OLAP Services delivers speed-of-thought analysis and lightning performance through an adaptive caching technology called In-memory. MicroStrategy In-memory has demonstrated query performance improvements up to 50x faster giving businesses information as quickly as they need it. Analytical Insight Reports are sometimes a starting point to begin answering business questions. Having a comprehensive set of data for analysis should equate to better decision making. Unfortunately, business users often feel bombarded with incomprehensible data. MicroStrategy OLAP Services provides the analytical tools necessary to sift through data to understand the drivers of business performance. MicroStrategy OLAP Services helps business users focus their analysis by applying business conditions to filter the data to return only the information required. MicroStrategy OLAP Services also lets business users create new business calculations. Many frequently used calculations such as variances, ranks, and time comparisons are only one click away. MicroStrategy OLAP Services offers a complete range of more than 200 arithmetical, statistical, and financial functions for use in new metrics and analysis. Furthermore, business users can create new analytical groups that consolidate similar business attributes together to identify important business characteristics not considered by the original report designer. In short, MicroStrategy OLAP Services empowers a new level of analytical insight and self-service for the business person. Economic Savings MicroStrategy OLAP Services provides economic savings in two ways. First, increasing self-service for business users means IT can create and maintain fewer reports. Second, MicroStrategy OLAP Services does not incur the immense IT burden of cube farms found in traditional multidimensional OLAP (MOLAP) products. In contrast, MicroStrategy OLAP Services implements its multidimensional functionality as a virtual cube, called an Intelligent Cube, that does not suffer from the problems of traditional cubes. Intelligent Cubes require little to no maintenance, and are a seamless inmemory extension of the MicroStrategy architecture.

2 Accelerate BI Performance with In-memory In-memory In-memory works as a seamless architectural extension of MicroStrategy. Physical Intelligent Cubes reside in memory while Architecture Cube Architecture In-memory their definitions reside in the global virtual cube of MicroStrategy metadata, delivering the best of both architectures. In-memory creates mid-tier cube databases called Intelligent Cubes that contain selected portions of the data warehouse. These Intelligent Cubes are seamlessly interwoven in the archi- Global Virtual Cube R O L A P S Q L E n g i n e R O L A P S Q L E n g i n e Physical In-memory Cubes tecture as they populate portions of the global multi-dimensional metadata model with actual data. In-memory Delivers Faster Report Performance Typical systems exhibit a wide range of performance profiles. MicroStrategy is supplemented with dynamic caching technology that saves report instances in memory so that the next user of the same report can be served the result directly from memory, avoiding database delays. This creates a performance profile with two response-time distributions: one for the database queries and one for the cache-based responses. In-memory changes the performance profile dramatically. It acquires another, or third, response-time distribution for in-memory queries that reside between the very fast caching distribution and the slower database distribution. In fact, the addition of In-memory technology redirects many database queries to be served directly from In-memory. In-memory takes advantage of the huge addressable memory space on 64-bit systems to provide high performance middle-tier databases that respond directly to data requests from reports, dashboards, and OLAP analyses from all users. Since the new middle-tier databases are stored in memory, they avoid disk access delays of traditional databases. Terabyte Terabyte In-memory combines the data scale of with the performance of multidimensional cubes. Number of Reports Performance Profile Typical Operation Cache BEFORE DB Queries User Response Time In-memory reduces the overall query response time profile resulting in significant performance improvements. Number of Reports Terabyte Performance Profile In-memory Operation Cache In-memory Queries AFTER DB Queries User Response Time 2

3 Optimize Usage and Improve the Performance of the Highest Value Reports Faster Queries, Smooth Usage In-memory offloads the highest value queries from the database and serves them to the users quickly and directly from memory. These reports are typically those with the highest level of use, interactivity, and those identified as having the highest business value. MicroStrategy s Cube Advisor tool and Enterprise Manager can analyze the query workload over time and determine which reports consume the most database processing time. Cube Advisor can then recommend combinations of attributes, metrics, and filters that should be consolidated into Intelligent Cubes and placed into memory. With the addition of the MicroStrategy MultiSource Option, Intelligent Cubes can be built on data from multiple data sources. In-memory offloads the most time-consuming and processor intensive queries from the databases and serves them directly from memory. The result is faster query time and a much more evenly utilized database system. BEFORE AFTER Average User Wait Time (sec) Average User Wait Time (sec) Free Up Capacity and Reduce User Wait Time In-memory can shift database processing from high-demand Wait Time interactive daylight business hours to the batch processing window Workload 80 Workload 80 overnight. This time-shifting improves user response time since the most time-consuming queries are immediately served from In-memory Intelligent Cubes. 100% ETL Window 0% 0 0:00a 3:00a 6:00a 9:00a Noon 3:00p 6:00p 9:00p 12:00a % ETL Window Wait Time 0% 0 0:00a 3:00a 6:00a 9:00a Noon 3:00p 6:00p 9:00p 12:00a Because In-memory also frees up database capacity during interactive hours, better response time for database-directed queries is also provided. This additional database capacity has the added benefit of potentially allowing enterprises to delay purchasing additional database capacity to meet ever-evolving interactive peak demand volumes. In-memory can shift database processing to off-hours, freeing up database capacity during peak interactive hours and improve user response time. 3

MicroStrategy OLAP Services uses Dynamic Sourcing to examine every report request for compatibility with the index of Source Report from Cube Drill Within Same Cube Drill Across Cube-to-Cube Drill from Cube to Intelligent Cubes, and automatically to route those requests to the Intelligent Cubes whenever possible. Additionally, Dynamic Drill from to Cube Sourcing automatically allows the report to source data from the data source if the data requirements for the report change, or Drill from Cube to cannot be satisfied by an Intelligent Cube. With MicroStrategy MultiSource Option, Intelligent Cubes can also be defined on data from multiple data sources. With MicroStrategy OLAP Services In-memory, there is no administrative cost to directly map or link reports to specific Intelligent Cubes. Dynamic Sourcing will always determine the fastest cube possible to satisfy the report request. Dynamic Sourcing is completely transparent to the business users; they simply experience faster report response times more frequently Seamless Drilling In and Out of Intelligent Cubes Drilling from dashboard key performance indicators (KPIs) to transaction-level details is effortless with MicroStrategy OLAP Services. By combining Intelligent Cube technology with the industry s only multi-pass SQL generation engine, MicroStrategy lets users freely drill beyond their predefined reports to other Intelligent Cubes data, or to the complete data warehouse, and back again. Again, all of this occurs transparently to the business user, and without any additional administrative cost. 3 R O L A P S Q L E n g i n e 4 MicroStrategy OLAP Services In-memory uses Dynamic Sourcing to choose the fastest source of data, whether it is from an Intelligent Cube or sourced from a database.

5 Create New Analytics with Derived Elements Make New Analytic Groupings MicroStrategy OLAP Services lets business users spontaneously combine elements of a business attribute to create new analytics: filters, lists, and consolidation calculations. This analytic capability is called Derived Elements since these new analytics are derived from elements of attributes. Filters In the example to the right, all the Postal zip codes in the United States are filtered by their first digits to create new Derived Element Regions. Filters have a wide range of conditions, so users have great flexibility in choosing how to see the data in different ways. MicroStrategy OLAP Services delivers insight faster to users wanting self-service analytical flexibility. Derived Elements new attribute filters, lists, and calculations are powerful, extensible, and easy to use. BEFORE: Useful ZIP CODE All US Zip Codes, but hard to see aggregations MONTH OF YEAR Every Month of Every Year Automatically Aggregated Lists Sometimes users want to group and order elements in a new way or a dozen new ways, which are often referred to as custom grouping. Now they can with Derived Element Lists. Consolidation Calculations Derived Elements empower users to create new consolidated calculations on attributes or even on other derived element combinations. Combine, Save, Share, and Reuse as Needed Derived Elements can even be combined to make additional new groups. All Derived Elements can be saved and shared with other users, and reused wherever the original attribute is used with an Intelligent Cube. AFTER: Insightful All of the Above, Plus: ZIP CODE Filtered to create spontaneous Regional Custom Groups MONTH OF YEAR Listed as Seasons, Half Years, Quarters, Start, Middle, and End Months Calculated as Sum, Difference, and Average 5

6 Define Insightful Metrics on Demand Metrics Deliver In-Depth Analysis MicroStrategy OLAP Services empowers users to augment or modify a report to support investigative analysis by dragging and dropping metrics from the cube. They can also create new metrics easily by simply using existing metrics in the cube, called Derived Metrics. On a report with revenue and cost metrics, a user can spontaneously create a new profit metric by subtracting the cost metric from the revenue metric. Although the profit metric did not exist in the initial report, the calculation can now be used to strengthen the user s analysis. Flexible Metric Creation MicroStrategy OLAP Services provides flexible metric creation from a simple right mouse-click using shortcut metrics and a floating dialog box. Predefined for rapid analysis, shortcut metrics capture the most requested calculations, including Percent To Total, Transformations (time variance calculations), and Rank. When creating metrics, users are able to intuitively load over 200 analytical functions with the click of a button. MicroStrategy OLAP Services delivers better insight faster. Derived Metric shortcuts as well as Percent To Total, Transformation, and Rank are within reach via a single right mouse-click. Faster Run Time Calculations When business users create new run-time calculations from existing metrics in an Intelligent Cube, the new calculation does not access the data warehouse. The Intelligent Cube computes the results directly on the MicroStrategy Intelligence Server. This speed-of-thought analysis delivers near instantaneous response time to the business user while reducing the IT backend. All new calculations are automatically saved in the Intelligent Cube for all users, according to their security profile. MicroStrategy OLAP Services delivers analytical power with over 200 advanced mathematical, statistical, and financial functions. 6

7 Filter Data for Powerful and Precise Analysis Comprehensive Analytical Filtering with View Filters MicroStrategy OLAP Services zeros in on any set of report data using run-time filtering for speed-of-thought analysis. This is especially useful when the report data is thousands of rows spanning many pages or screens. MicroStrategy OLAP Services can qualify report data through: Specific attribute inclusion or exclusion Attribute-to-attribute comparisons Attribute-to-value comparisons Metric-to-metric comparisons Metric-to-value comparisons For these data qualifications, MicroStrategy OLAP Services uses an extensive set of logical operators for comparing text as well as numeric data values. For example, a user can filter a product profitability report to view only the products that make up the top 10% of profits. Advanced Filtering Precision Business users can define multiple nested filtering conditions, creating combinations of filter criteria, using AND, AND NOT, OR, and OR NOT. They can also specify the order in which filters execute to precisely control the analysis. For every new filter, MicroStrategy OLAP Services automatically updates the resulting report data. Any filter can now be set to operate at the grid or Intelligent Cube level. Improved Productivity and Economic Savings As with metric creation, MicroStrategy OLAP Services performs A View Filter definition panel and flexible criteria make adding and modifying filtering conditions easy with MicroStrategy OLAP Services. this analytical filtering in the Intelligent Cube directly on the Intelligence Server without any database involvement. The business user experiences lightning quick response times resulting in improved productivity, while IT sees a reduced backend load resulting in economic savings. 7
