Abstract

Enterprise applications are, in practice, considered to be related to either OnLine Transaction Processing (OLTP) or OnLine Analytical Processing (OLAP). However, in fact, there are no strict borders between these two categories of enterprise applications. This paper aims at addressing this issue and suggesting the deployment of Business Objects (Bos) for realising OLAP applications besides OLTP applications, and using the applications of one category in the domain of the other category with minor changes. The basic needed characteristics and functionality in order to follow this approach are listed, and the resulting advantages are named.
