Abstract

Data is an integrated form of observable and recordable facts in operational or transactional systems in the data warehouse. Usually, data warehouse stores aggregated and historical data in multi-dimensional schemas. Data only have value to end-users when it is formulated and represented as information. And Information is a composed collection of facts for decision making. Cube computation is the most efficient way for answering this decision making queries and retrieve information from data. Online Analytical Process (OLAP) used in this purpose of the cube computation. There are two types of OLAP: Relational Online Analytical Processing (ROLAP) and Multidimensional Online Analytical Processing (MOLAP). This research worked on ROLAP and MOLAP and then compare both methods to find out the computation times by the data volume. Generally, a large data warehouse produces an extensive output, and it takes a larger space with a huge amount of empty data cells. To solve this problem, data compression is inevitable. Therefore, Compressed Row Storage (CRS) is applied to reduce empty cell overhead.
