Analytic Views, in combination with Attribute Dimensions and Hierarchies, are very useful for ad-hoc queries in a Star Schema. But how about the performance of this Oracle 12.2 feature? I wanted to know it and analyzed the execution plans of some simple queries.
In summer time, the nights are very short. For some Data Warehouses, this is the case all year round, but not because of late sunset and early sunrise. The night is not long enough to finish all the ETL jobs. Long-running load jobs that run for several hours are not a seldom situation. Here some tips how this can be avoided.
On 13 and 14 September 2017, the Trivadis Performance Days 2017 will take place in Zurich. As in previous years, it will be an exciting event for everybody interested in Oracle performance features. For me, it will be a very special adventure this year.
Analytic Views are one of the main features for Business Intelligence introduced with Oracle 12c Release 2. They provide a lot of new possibilities for analytical queries on star schemas. This blog post gives an overview of the new functionality.
