Overview of this book

Oracle Essbase is a Multi-Dimensional Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) server, providing a rich environment for effectively developing custom analytic and enterprise performance management applications. Oracle Essbase enables business users to quickly model complex business scenarios. This practical cookbook shows you the advanced development techniques when building Essbase Applications and how to take these applications further. Packed with over 90 task-based and immediately reusable recipes, this book starts by showing you how to use a relational data model to build and load an Essbase cube and how to create a data source, prepare the mini schema, and work with the data elements in Essbase Studio. The book then dives into topics such as building the BSO cube, building the ASO cube, using EAS for development, creating Calculation Scripts and using MaxL to automate processes.

Security in Essbase is flexible enough to support very complicated applications with complex access requirements and restrictions. This flexibility will help a developer design an outline without having to create a very large distributed model for the same subject area. When we are developing an Essbase database, careful planning and leveraging of your security will prevent enormous amounts of maintenance going forward and keep the user experience as intuitive as possible by hiding the complexities in an Essbase outline. This task is accomplished by implementing effective group, role, and filter-level security. This chapter will not cover the whole of user and role security.
