OLAP – non-sql database vs Oracle ?

We already have Oracle 10g and are thinking about using a non-sql database like Mongo for a static 40,000 part “product list” that gets created nightly which is fine since this is STATIC data.

My other developers want to also use a non-sql database for OLAP.

We are thinking it is probably not worth it and might continue to use Oracle 10g for OLAP.

What do you recommend ?
Do you have any additional links besides the below ?

40000 records is pretty small, if you already have Oracle there is no reason to invest in any new technology.

I agree with sdstuber. 40000 rows is a small table for any db or OLAP.

Question is - what are you going to gain with no-sql?
Do you have some problems with your current technology? Are the developers just more familiar with no-SQL than Oracle OLAP?
