OLAP DataBase

Hi Community, I have a few general questions I was wondering about: Can mendix connect to an OLAP DataBase? Does Mendix prefer any type of DataBase over one another? (Like OLAP over conventional databases)?   Thank you in advance

It depends on what you mean bij “connect”.

Every app requires it's own database. For this database there is a limited set of options, see https://docs.mendix.com/refguide/system-requirements#databases 

Having said that, Mendix apps can integrate with any other system through any way possible. Webservices, rest services, flat files, ODBC, Odata,… anything. It may require downloading modules from the appstore or developing your own java based interface. But anything is possible.
