  • Grouping Sets and Super Groups (ROLLUP & CUBE)
    • Many BI applications and OLAP tools involve hierarchical, multi-dimensional aggregate views of transaction data
      • Users need to view results at multiple levels
      • Users need to view result data from different perspective
      • Current grouping support only allows aggregation data of along a SINGLE dimension
      • EXAMPLE : SELECT country region, store, product, SUM(sales) FROM trans
      • GROUP BY country region, store, product
      • Limitations result in extra coding for programmers
    • V6R1 grouping and OLAP capabilities allow data to be grouped in multiple ways with a single SQL request
      • GROUPING SETS
      • ROLLUP
      • CUBE
    Less Coding for Developers!
