OLAP (Online Analytical Processing)
[Definition]:

OLAP (Online Analytical Processing) makes it easy for business users to report on and manipulate data from different points of view (bike sales in January vs. bike sales in June compared with bike accessories sold in the Northeast across the same time period). OLAP data is stored in multidimensional databases where each attribute is a separate dimension (product, region, time period, etc.).
