With the slice and dice feature, you can create a new view for end users by selecting dimensions and measures from the OLAP cube and filtering them.
KPIs are collections of calculations associated with a measure group that evaluates business success. Typically, these calculations are a combination of multi-dimensional expressions (MDX) or calculated members. Four different types of KPI indicators available are:
The named sets are MDX expressions that return a set of dimension members, which can be defined and saved as a part of the OLAP cube definition. Named sets simplify MDX queries and provide useful aliases for complex, typically used, set expressions.
You can now create and display dimensions and measures on your own.
