One issue that arises is the amount of space that calculating every possibility can take. Consider a sales cube: 365 days; 1,500 products; 100 sales people; 50 sales districts. For that one year, the engine would have to calculate 365 × 1,500 × 100 × 50 = 2,737,500,000 values. Each year. And we haven’t figured in the hierarchies (product categories, months and quarters, and so forth). Another issue here is that not every intersection is going to have a value; not every product is bought in every district every day.

16 CHAPTER 2 „ CUBES, DIMENSIONS, AND MEASURES Figure 2-2. Analyzing spreadsheets Again we can see that we have broken down our numbers by country, by year, and by product, and we can see the cube shape that gives cubes their name. We can see that the amount of Alice mutton sold in France in 1996 is $936. So we have a member from each of three dimensions to get a single value. That value is a measure. Measures are the numeric data “inside” a cube. They define the data we get by selecting members from dimensions.

The trick is in the analysis and implementation. You’ll examine proper implementation of SCDs in Analysis Services later in the book. For our next challenge, what do we do when there is a hierarchy (parent-child relationship) in a dimension? Hierarchies In the section on schemas, you looked at stars and snowflakes, with the main difference being that snowflakes use multiple tables to define dimensions. As I mentioned, you use snowflake schemas to implement a hierarchy—for example, Categories have Subcategories, and Subcategories have Products, as shown in Figure 2-7.
