Decision making is an activity that addresses the problem of extracting knowledge and information from data stored in data warehouses, in order to improve the business processes of information systems. Usually, decision making is based on On-Line Analytical Processing, data mining, or approximate query processing. In the last case, answers to analytical queries are provided in a fast manner, although affected with a small percentage of error. In the paper, we present the architecture of an approximate query answering system. Then, we illustrate our ADAP (Analytical Data Profile) system, which is based on an engine able to provide fast responses to the main statistical functions by using orthogonal polynomials series to approximate the data distribution of multi­dimensional relations. Moreover, several experimental results to measure the approximation error are shown and the response-time to analytical queries is reported.
