KalSoft proposed a data warehousing technique to convert this data to aggregated information through cubes. Microsoft SSRS services were also used to transform the data within these cubes to valuable information that can be shared with business users to understand the behavior of user interaction. The dynamic data captured through the event absorber on the site can help visualize very old data, like 2 years, though Power Pivot. The dashboards were based on HOLAP technology using SSAS and having multi-dimensional cubes, that provided valuable insights within seconds. The immense flow of data that needs to be managed, integrated, cleaned and make it subject oriented was resolved through data warehouse. Through data warehouse the analytical data gets compiled using SSAS and the dashboard used to fetch data from the SSAS Analytical Cubes.
