What do you think about MOLAP (this are the systems like Express, Essbase etc.)? Do we make the same error in using them we did as we used network database systems before the relational systems stood up?


Sid Adelman's answer: I don't know what mistakes you made using network database systems, but just because we have some new technology and new buzzwords, it won't keep us from making mistakes. Those mistakes are likely to be the same ones we made with previous generations of products. Don't assume the new products insulate you from doing things wrong. Don't assume that just because there are new products and they similarities to some of the old products, we will be forced to implement them in foolish ways.
