OLAP and Hadoop: The 4 Differences You Should Know

Perficient Data & Analytics

OLAP and Hadoop are not the same. OLAP is a technology to perform multi-dimensional analytics like reporting and data mining. They can be used together but there are differences when choosing between using Hadoop/MapReduce data processing versus classic OLAP. For transactions and data mining use OLAP. For known cleaned data/processes that yield definitive results of high integrity use OLAP. E.g., use OLAP for weather sensors, but Hadoop for weather models.

BI Cubed: Data Lineage on OLAP Anyone?

Octopai

This is how the Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) cube was born, which you might call one of the grooviest BI inventions developed in the 70s. OLAP cube is designed as a solution to pre-compute totals and subtotals when the database server is idle. Totals are pre-calculated and stored in a special database called an OLAP cube, providing the appearance of instant access. The OLAP cube makes reading data across multiple dimensions manageable.
