Hi Sangeeta,

Finding the top 50 customers in the country so that we can focus on the particular community to grab the market. This is DSS.
OLAP is also a decision support system. E.g. Geographywise allocation of customers. How many customrs are there in north zone,south zone..
OLAP involves 2D ,3D or multi dimensional representation of data.
