The beauty of this design is how quickly you can answer the business intelligence queries posed earlier. With the self-indexing columnar design, you don’t need to access all records for all products to get the quarterly figures. You don’t even need to access the sales figures for quarters that you’re not interested in. With the columnar database, you only access data elements that are relevant to the query. With databases containing millions of records, you can see how quickly this time savings adds up.
