Business Intelligence is a combination of methods, procedures, and technology that assist corporations, business managers, and other end users in making better business choices. Business intelligence refers to the use of data to manage a company's day-to-day operations. When leaders want to gather and save data regarding current operations, maximize workflow, provide insightful reports, and meet their current business goals, they turn to business intelligence tools and specialists. Business analytics is a more statistically driven area in which data analysts utilize quantitative techniques to create forecasts and design future growth plans. Some experts use business analytics as a term to describe a set of predictive tools used within the realm of business intelligence.

 

The rise has been enormous, and it has provided a plethora of chances for people interested in working as business intelligence analysts. With the passage of time, business duties get more sophisticated, leaving less time for research and development. Large corporations are rushing to win the competition, which necessitates a thorough comprehension of topics. However, as the amount of chaotic data grows, real-time analysis becomes increasingly difficult. That is the moment at which businesses want technology that allow them to quickly assess and forecast market trends, and BI fulfils this requirement.

We are continually attempting to develop innovative educational techniques here. Our Business Intelligence and Analytics courseware includes Microsoft Power BI, Board BI Platform, Data Warehousing and BI, and other key and necessary topics. We provide Business Intelligence and Analytics training to assist professionals in staying ahead of the competition. We believe in high-quality instruction; therefore, participants will be mentored by industry professionals throughout the course. Participants will get lifelong access to our specialists as part of the post-training assistance.

4. What is the universe in Business Analytics?

Answer:
The universe is a kind of semantic layer between the database and user interface. More correctly, it is one of the interfacing layers between the client (business user) and a data warehouse. It actually defines an entire relationship between various tables in a data warehouse.

5. Define or list the differences between OLAP and OLTP?

Answer:
In general, we can assume OLTP is actually helping to provide source data in a data warehouse and OLAP help to analyze the same.

Business Intelligence interview questions

 

OLTP System

 

OLAP System

 

Source of Data

Operational data, OLTP are the original source of data.

Consolidated data, OLAP data has come from various OLTP databases.

Purpose of Data

For any kind of current or fundamental business tasks.

To help with future planning, problem-solving or decision making.

Data Updating

End users initiated data frequently insert or update in the transactional database.

Data updated based on a batch job after one defined time interval. This time can be less or more than one day.

Processing Speed

As usual, typically very fast.

Obviously depends on the amount of data. After refreshing batch data, sometimes complex queries are taken more than hours. Common habit to add an index to improve the speed.

Space requirement

Again relative small considering historical data in the archived state.

Obviously larger as it has to hold all the historical data, the existence of aggregation structures also require more indexes than OLTP.

Database Architecture

Normalized data, so all the tables and data have a proper relationship.

Typically de-normalize of few tables (like factor dimensions). It normally used a star or snowflake schema.

Backup and Recovery

Back-up is an essential requirement on OLTP, as it’s day-to-day data, so any data loss is likely to entail significant monetary loss and legal liability.

Instead of regular backups, some environment may consider simply reloading the OLTP data as a recovery method.

6. What is a dashboard in a data warehouse?

Answer:
The dashboard is nothing but the arrangement of all the reports and graphs on one page. It is nothing but the collection of reports in a different format that has the same functionality display on the same page.

7. Explain the difference between data warehouse and transnational system.

Answer:

Transactional System

Data Warehouse System

It normally designed to process with day to day data, so it mainly concentrates on high volume transaction processing rather than backend reporting.

It normally designed to processed high volume analytical reporting and subsequence. It is also elaborating report generation.

It is normally processes driven, which means it depends on a business-specific task or execution.

It is actually subject-oriented, which means it loads data from a transactional system, then open to use for any kind of analytical reporting, which helps the organisation make proper decisions based on that specific subject.

It is normally handling current transactional data.

It is normally handling historical data.

Data within a transactional system can insert or update or delete in each task.

Data warehouse data is called as non-volatile, meaning that new data can be added regularly, but once loaded, those data are rarely changed.

In case of performance or speed, we should always prefer a transactional system for inserting, updating or deleting small volumes of data.

We should always prefer a data warehouse to fast retrieval of a relatively large volume of data.

8. Explain the Fact and Dimension table with an example.

Answer:
A Fact table is the center table in the star schema of a data warehouse. It was actually holding quantitative information for analysis, and maximum time it de-normalized.

A dimension table is one of the important tables in a data warehouse’s star schema, which stores attribute, or dimension, that describe the objects in a fact table.

The fact table mainly holds two types of columns. The foreign key column allows joins with dimension tables, and the major columns contain the data that is being analyzed.

Example: Suppose one company sells products to customers. So every sale will be one fact, so the fact table holds that information like below:

Time ID

Product ID

Customer ID

Unit Sold

4

17

2

1

8

21

3

2

8

4

1

1

Now in the fact table, there has a customer id, so we need to maintain one dimension table for a customer like below:

Customer ID

Name

Gender

Income

Education

Region

1

SS

M

2

3

4

2

AC

M

3

5

1

3

MS

F

1

7

3

9. Define or list the differences between a snowflake schema and a star schema.

Answer:

 

Snowflake Schemas

Star Schema

Maintenance

No redundancy, so easier to maintain.

Holding redundant data so less easy to maintain.

Complexity

More complex query, hence less easy to understand.

Lower a complex query, so easy to understand.

Query Performance

The more foreign key, so longer query execution time.

Less number of foreign key, so query execution is faster compared to a snowflake.

Utilization

Good to use for data warehouse core to simplify complex relationship (many: many).

Good for Data Mart with a simple relationship (1:1 or 1: many).

Dimension Table

A snowflake schema may have more than one dimension table for each dimension.

Star schema contains only a single dimension table for each dimension.

De-normalize

A fact table is in de-normalized form, but the dimension table is in normalized form.

Fact and Dimension both the tables are in de-normalized form.

 

10. Explain or Define a RAGGED hierarchy.

Answer:
Ragged hierarchy actually maintaining a relationship in case of parent member of at least one member of the dimension is not in the level immediately above the member. As an example, if we think about geographical hierarchy and considering North America as a continent, then it has a country (like the United States), province or state (like California), and city (like San Francisco). But if we consider Europe, Greece, or Athens, it doesn’t have this kind of hierarchy. So in this example, Europe, Greece or Athens branches descend to a different depth, creating a ragged hierarchy.
