Hi there! I am exploring OLAP for the first time. I started with understanding the theory and concepts and then moved on to implementation when I ended up at Cubes. I have learnt even more about OLAP systems by reading through the docs of Cubes.

The thing I am finding it difficult to get a hang on is after I model the dimensions, setup cubes and everything, how do I import my existing data into Cubes? Should Cubes be used only for querying? Should I load the data using ETL? My transactional data is currently in Postges.
