Online analytical processing (OLAP)
Model information to support managers and business professionals during the decision-making process
Include On-line Analytical Processing (OLAP) Tools
Excel can be a DSS

Decision Support Systems (DSS)
A system containing enterprise-wide information presented via simple and easy to use interfaces for quick insight and analysis by executives
Can be OLAP-tool based
E.g. digital dashboards

Executive Information Systems (EIS)
Three quantitative models typically used by DSS
-Sensitivity analysis – the study of the impact that changes in one (or more) parts of the model have on other parts of the model (SOLVER)

-What-if analysis – checks the impact of a change in an assumption on the proposed solution (IF FUNCTION, SCENARIO MANAGER)

-Goal-seeking analysis – finds the inputs necessary to achieve a goal such as a desired level of output (GOAL SEEK)

designed to access DW data and they are more capable of true analysis than standard reporting tools typically used to access relational operational data.
BI tools (a.k.a. OLAP Tools)
Most BI (OLAP) tools offer the following capabilities
-Consolidation – involves the aggregation of information and features simple roll-ups to complex groupings of interrelated information (PIVOT TABLES)

-Drill-down – enables users to get details, and details of details, of information

-Slice-and-dice – looks at information from different perspective

integrates information from multiple components and presents it in a unified display
Digital Dashboard
-Finding “interesting” patterns in large amounts of data

-The patterns should be:

-Intersection of database management, machine learning (artificial intelligence), and statistics

Data Mining
-Also known as Market Basket Analysis or Association Rule Mining

-determines which objects or features appear together
finds correlations among variables

-E.g. Beer and diapers tend to be bought together

Affinity Grouping
Association-rule mining discovers correlations among items within transactions
Association Rule Mining A.K.A. Market Basket Analysis
the fraction of transactions containing items X, which also contain items Y.

_______ (XY) = Count (transactions containing X and Y) / Count (transactions containing X)

the fraction of transactions that contain both X and Y items
_______ (XY) = Count (transactions containing X and Y) / Count (all transactions)
The support measures the ______ of the rule, so we are interested in rules with relatively high support
The confidence measures the ______ of the correlation, so rules with low confidence are not meaningful, even if their support is high
