OLAP provides fast and interactive access to aggregated data and the ability to drill down to detail. OLAP lets users view and interrogate large volumes of data (often millions of rows) by pre-aggregating the information. It puts the data needed to make strategic decisions directly into the hands of the decision makers, not only through pre-defined queries and reports, but also because it gives end users the ability to perform their own ad hoc queries, minimizing users' dependence on database developers.

On-Line Analytical Processing (OLAP) is a category of software technology that enables analysts, managers and executives to gain insight into data through fast, consistent, interactive access to a wide variety of possible views of information that has been transformed from raw data to reflect the real dimensionality of the enterprise as understood by the user.
