        private void InitializeConnection()
            Binding customBinding = new CustomBinding(new BinaryMessageEncodingBindingElement(), new HttpTransportBindingElement { MaxReceivedMessageSize = 2147483647 });
            EndpointAddress address = new EndpointAddress("");
            ChannelFactory<IOlapDataProvider> clientChannel = new ChannelFactory<IOlapDataProvider>(customBinding, address);
            dataProvider = clientChannel.CreateChannel();
            OlapDataManager olapDataManager = new OlapDataManager();
            olapDataManager.DataProvider = dataProvider;
