  • 57. Definitions
    • Data mining is the process of extracting hidden patterns from data. As more data is gathered, with the amount of data doubling every three years data mining is becoming an increasingly important tool to transform this data into information. It is commonly used in a wide range of profiling practices, such as marketing, surveillance, fraud detection and scientific discovery.
    • 58. Dashboards: Typically, information is presented to the manager via a graphics display called a Dashboard. A BIS (Business Intelligence System) Dashboard serves the same function as a car’s dashboard. Specifically, it reports key organizational performance data and options on a near real time and integrated basis. Dashboard based business intelligence systems do provide managers with access to powerful analytical systems and tools in a user friendly environment.
    • 59. Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is a company-wide computer software system used to manage and coordinate all the resources, information, and functions of a business from shared data stores.
    • 60. Online analytical processing, or OLAP is an approach to quickly answer multi-dimensional analytical queries. OLAP is part of the broader category of business intelligence, which also encompasses relational reporting and data mining.  The typical applications of OLAP are in business reporting for sales, marketing, management reporting, business process management (BPM), budgeting and forecasting, financial reporting and similar areas. The term OLAP was created as a slight modification of the traditional database term OLTP (Online Transaction Processing)
    • 61. Multidimensional/ hyper cubes: A group of data cells arranged by the dimensions of the data. For example, a spreadsheet exemplifies a two-dimensional array with the data cells arranged in rows and columns, each being a dimension. A three-dimensional array can be visualized as a cube with each dimension forming a side of the cube, including any slice parallel with that side. Higher dimensional arrays have no physical metaphor, but they organize the data in the way users think of their enterprise. Typical enterprise dimensions are time, measures, products, geographical regions, sales channels, etc. Synonyms: Multi-dimensional Structure, Cube, Hypercube
    • 62. OLAP operations: Slice, Dice, Drill Down/Up, Roll-up, Pivot
    • 63. See this site for all these definitions: AND DICE
