OLAP (online analytic processing)

OLAP (online analytic processing) is a term used in analytics to describe tools or technology that arranges data into what are called "information cubes."


An OLAP "cube" is a set of information which includes one or more dimensions (rows and columns) and then data elements (called measures).

For example, historically OLAP was used for financial data - ie. revenue is a measure in dollars.  But we may want to look at revenue by product,
and each product is part of a product family, and the product family might be part of another grouping or hierarchy (like color). Another dimensions may be time - this week, this month, last month, last quarter, etc.  Each of these dimensions has a hierarchy of some kind (second, minute, hour, day, week, month, quarter, year). 

Then the data itself (revenue) is called a "measure."  

The technology dynamically computes all the little intersections of dimensions very quickly.

So what OLAP tools do is let you load data into this "cube" or database, and then quickly analyze it by traversing around the hierarchy.  So one may say "let's look at product revenue for the red versions of product X by quarter."  Then we may say let's look at this by month, and compare with blue products.  The OLAP technology dynamically drills and aggregates data to make this very fast and easy.

Software tools which use OLAP technology include Excel Pivot Tables, MicroStrategy, BusinessObjects, Hyperion, Tableau, and many others.

Open ID
OpenID is a shared identity service, which allows Internet users to log on to many different websites using a single digital identity ("single sign-on"), eliminating the need for a different user name and password for each site. OpenID is a decentralized, free and open standard that lets users control the amount of personal information they provide. Using OpenID-enabled sites, web users do not need to remember traditional items of identity (such as username and password); instead, they only need to be registered with any OpenID "identity provider" (IdP). Since OpenID is decentralized, any website can use OpenID as a way for users to sign in; OpenID does not require a centralized authority to confirm a user's digital identity.
 
OpenSocial
OpenSocial is a set of common application programming interfaces (APIs) for web-based social network applications, developed by Google (along with MySpace and a number of other social networks). It was released November 1, 2007. Applications implementing the OpenSocial APIs will be interoperable with any social network system that supports them. Based on HTML and JavaScript, as well as the Google Gadgets framework, OpenSocial includes four APIs for social software applications to access data and core functions on participating social networks. Each API addresses a different aspect – one is the general JavaScript API, one for people and friends (people and relationship information), one for activities (publishing and accessing user activity information), and one for persistence (simple key-value pair data for server-free stateful applications). OpenSocial is currently in alpha development.
