Oracle Essbase is the industry-leading multi-dimensional online analytical processing (OLAP) server, providing a rich environment for effectively developing custom analytic and enterprise performance management applications. By leveraging its self-managed, rapid application development capabilities, business users can quickly model complex business scenarios. For example, line-of-business personnel can simply and rapidly develop and manage analytic applications that can forecast likely business performance levels and deliver “what-if” analyses for varying conditions. Oracle Essbase supports extremely fast query response times for vast numbers of users, large data sets, and complex business models.
Oracle Essbase brings advanced analytics to the business user to enable greater understanding of the business, alignment of resources and improved business results. With the advantage of consistent, sub­second response times, users can interact with the data at the speed-­of­-thought without support from technical experts. This ability to “converse” with the data — understanding that an answer to one question leads to another — enables business users to better identify and analyze the metrics and relationships that influence performance, and to make better, more informed decisions. Users can share their saved reports, and modify their appearance, or create powerful additional queries as new questions arise.
