SAS® OLAP Server and SAS® OLAP Cube Studio

Quickly analyze information that has been summarized into multidimensional views and hierarchies. Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) enables you to build consistent OLAP cubes using an integrated ETL process, and allows you to get the reports you need without involving IT. 

SAS OLAP Server is a scalable server that provides multi-user access to data that is stored in SAS OLAP cubes. The purpose of the server is to respond to queries from cube viewers. SAS OLAP Server runs in the background on specially configured host computers.

SAS OLAP Cube Studio provides an easy-to-use graphical user interface to create and manage SAS OLAP cubes. You can use it to build and edit SAS OLAP cubes, to incrementally update cubes, to tune aggregations, and to make various other modifications to existing cubes.
