Ad-hoc analysis is reporting users create directly and interactively from an enterprise's data to generate new information for particular business situations or problems. Also known as on-the-fly analysis, ad-hoc reports differ from standard reports because users determine the content and structure of the analyses themselves. To create ad-hoc analyses, users need online access to a multidimensional data source - usually an OLAP database. The main advantage of ad-hoc analysis is the fast provision of information that is not available in existing standard reports. For example, financial analysts can quickly build ad-hoc reports that provide answers to specific questions rapidly and without huge effort.
