Hadn't done that in a few years!

As you may have noticed, I am running this global survey for my upcoming book, at www.frankbuytendijk.com (if you haven't filled it in, please do so!). I have over 500 respondents already, and it is time to start to think about analyzing the results.

Honestly, I don't like spreadsheets, and I don't feel like writing macro's. So, I decided to use what is now known as Oracle OLAP Option. My first job was at IRI Software, that got acquired by Oracle in 1995 (and I left the company a year before that). I haven't worked with the technology since then, 15 years ago.

But if I close my eyes, I can still remember how it used to work. The version I am using is over 10 years old, and it has progressed immensely in the meantime. So I set out yesterday evening, loaded all the data into a data model, and am ready to start analyzing.

If you still know how to operate a tool, after 15 years, it says something about the power of its logic.

Ohhhh... am I having fun. Just like old days.
