The cubes are multidimensional data storage for analysing data (Desision support sistems, Managers support sistem, financial support sistem, etc).
If you have DB2 version 7, then the software is included in DB2 instalations CD. It's name is DB2 OLAP Starter Kit. But this software is for test environments only. The full software is DB2 OLAP Server.
In DB2 version 8 DB2 OLAP Starter Kit is not supported in DB2 installation CD. You have to buy full OLAP server product.
Link for information about cubes (OLAP server product) is below.

Hope this helps.

Is there any good starting point for what cubes are in db2 and how to create them along with software needed.
