Seminar • Data Systems — Managing Big Multidimensional Data — A Journey from Data Acquisition to Prescriptive Analytics
Torben Bach Pedersen, Professor of Computer Science
Data collected from new sources such as sensors and smart devices is large, fast, and often complex. There is a universal wish to perform multidimensional OLAP-style analytics on such data, i.e., to turn it into “Big Multidimensional Data.” Supporting this is a multi-stage journey, requiring new tools and systems, and forming a new, extended data cycle with models as a key concept. We will look at three specifics steps in this data cycle.
