Decision Support Objects
The Decision Support Objects (DSO) library of Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 Analysis Services provides a robust set of Component Object Model (COM) objects and interfaces that you can use to create applications that can programmatically administer Analysis Services objects. With the DSO library, you can manage Analysis Services objects, such as servers, databases, data sources, dimensions, cubes, mining models, and roles. You can also administer security, process cubes and mining models, and so on. For more information about the features of Analysis Services, see Analysis Services Features.
