SSAS

SSAS

Overview:

Analysis Services enables you to analyze large quantities of data. With it, you can design, create, and manage multidimensional structures that contain detail and aggregated data from multiple data sources. To manage and work with Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) cubes, you use SQL Server Management Studio. To create new OLAP cubes, you use Business Intelligence Development Studio.
