Multidimensional Online Analytical Processing


Multidimensional online database processing (MOLAP) is a database processing technique that indexes data stored in multidimensional databases, rather than relational databases (as in relational online database processing or ROLAP). Data indexed by MOLAP is pre-processed and can be viewed multi-dimensionally.
