3. Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (SSAS) provides tools for data mining with which you can identify rules and patterns in your data, so that you can determine why things happen and predict what will happen in the future – giving you powerful insight that will help your company make better business decisions.

The Proactive Cache transparently synchronizes and maintains an updated copy of the data organized specifically for high-speed querying and for isolating end-users from overloading the relational databases. The structure of the cache is automatically derived from the Universal Data Model (UDM) structure and can be finely tuned to balance performance with latency of data.
