Grad Course by Kaser and Lemire: Data Warehousing and OLAP

For the third time, this term, we are teaching CS6905 Advanced Technologies for E-Business: Data Warehousing and OLAP. The course material is mostly original content gathered from OLAP and Data Warehousing papers. This is probably a unique course and I’m very proud of its quality though there is at least one similar course out there offered by Dimitra Vista from Drexel University. Here’s the summary:

On-line Analytical Processing (OLAP) aims to accelerate typical queries in large databases or data warehouses so that on-line performance is possible. OLAP constitutes one of the core data-mining technologies used in industry. This section of the course will target the core technology behind OLAP.

This is the second half of a two parts course, the first part is on web services (mostly SOAP-related stuff), but Yuhong has not had time yet to post here new course content but you can check out the 2004 version.

Eventually, I’d be interested in either offering the course in Montreal, making a tutorial out of it, or making an online version of it.
