  2. 2.

  3. 3. www.bi-sol.com (469) 287-5784 OLTP With all of the information and transactions the OLTP system is required to handle, utilizing the system to run complex queries can put an extreme an unnecessary load onto the system. (This can in turn cause detrimental lags in the daily 'transaction' functionality, which the OLTP is designed to run) Back ups must be done frequently as data loss in your OLTP can lead to Monetary and Legal complications.
  4. 4. OLAP's are data warehouses which leverage data acquired from OLTP systems to help organzations make better decisions Periodic Refreshes made to upload data OLAP from OLTP system(s) www.bi-sol.com (469) 287-5784 OLAP Consolidation of data from OLTP system(s) Helps with Planning, Problem Solving, and making Decisions Multi_Dimensional views of business activities Allows for the execution of complex queries (aggregations) Processing speed can vary depending on system structure More often de-normalized with fewer tables, cubes utilized

Highly Visual Reports can be extracted and presented in a manner fit for end users A great benefit of an OLAP system is the potential for the system to be utilized as a 'back­up' of the OLTP by regularly reloading the data from the OLTP to OLAP.

The data created by your OLTP can be seen as 'fuel' for your enterprise, where an OLTP system is the vehicle which filters, extracts, and consumes that fuel to analyze, predict and propel best business practices.
