OLAP or Tableau? Why not both?
Tableau is ideal for visualizing data from different sources, including OLAP Cubes such as SQL Server Analysis Services, Oracle Essbase, and SAP BW, to name a few. While cubes pre-aggregate the data for each intersection of dimension members, Tableau works best with granular data. So what’s the best approach?
In this session, we will cover some scenarios where cubes and Tableau are a great combination and see how you can create hierarchies, business rules, sets, and more.
We’ll also explore some Tableau tips and tricks for working with cubes as well as some newer features.
