  • 1. Flex-OLAP Products Deliver components to facilitate analysis of Mondrian based OLAP systems
  • 2. What we understand
    • Flex-Mondrian Technology Needs
      • Multiple data delivery options (XMLA, MDX, JDBC)
      • Cube Inventory and Meta-data
      • Intuitive drag-drop grid interfaces for non-MDX queries
    • What we heard from our research
      • Less reporting more discovery analysis
      • Slice-dice available cubes
      • Flex 3
      • Mondrian
      • Educated user-base
      • Jboss Server
  • 3. Results: Investigate Flex-Mondrian Technology Flex Pentaho Mondrian DB ROLAP Cubes Data Requested and Delivered AMF Java Pentaho Mondrian DB ROLAP Cubes Flex Extreme Recommended if system will have >60 concurrent users Recommended SOAP XMLA
  • 4. Results: Cube Inventory Component
    • Using the proposed architecture it is possible to obtain inventory and metadata of available OLAP data:
      • Cube Inventory
      • Cube Metadata:
        • Dimensions
        • Hierarchies
        • Levels
        • Members
        • Measures
    Cube Metadata OLAP Inventory
  • 5.
    • MDX Based Interface for technical and specific analysis
      • Consistent interfaces for query results
      • Support User-created MDX queries
      • Enhance discovery by reporting available OLAP tuples
      • Enable storing of queries and results
    OLAP MDX Component
  • 6.
    • Non-MDX based analysis for non-technical analysis
      • Empower users by providing drag-drop support to create 3 Axis queries:
          • Colums, Rows, Measure
      • Use OLAP meta-data to define drag-drop tuple options
      • Axis tuples can be further filtered using tuple drop-downs
      • Enable storing and sharing of queries and results
    Available Tuples Tuple drop-downs OLAP Pivot Component
  • 7. HTTP
    • Creates communication layer between Flex and Mondrian
      • Implements Flex 3’s OLAP interfaces: IOLAP______
      • Uses SOAP to issue XMLA requests
      • Supports execution of MDX queries and conversion to IOLAPCube
      • Will support flattening of XMLA results for use in non-OLAP components
      • Logging supports server-side log4j, on-demand Flex UI logging
      • Facilitates custom development
    OLAP ActionScript Library OLAP ActionScript Library Flex Pentaho Mondrian IOLAP__ Data AS3 SOAP XMLA
  • 8.
    • Exporting
      • Export to Excel via Office Web Component (requires use of IE)
      • Export to CSV
    • Visualization
    • 1. Cartesian graph support (Bar, column, line)
    • Development and Integration
    • 1. Analysis pieces (Tabs in prototype) can act independently
    • 2. Analysis pieces created as separate Flex components
    • 3. Code can be delivered
    • 4. Charting and Export items require more research to find best way to integrate into existing application.
