Jonathan Lewis writes: “In part 8 we looked at a very simple execution plan involving a hash join; but that example was too simple to give us the full flavour of the arithmetic involved in Oracle’s predictions because every operation executed just once. We need to see some plans where each execution of a parent operation could requires multiple executions of its child operations; and that’s what we’re going to do in parts 9 and 10.”

Jeff McQuigg says, “Every single BI system has a time/date/period/calendar hierarchy in it. If you use the BI Apps, it actually comes with 2 different tables for this purpose alone, along with a ton of OOB capability. However, when you are faced with a pure custom system from scratch, how do you build one? What does it look like? What sort of data should it have in it?”

He wraps up by saying that a good time hierarchy should be very robust and flexible for users.
