Yellowfin Reporting Release 3 OLAP Connectivity

Yellowfin Reporting Announces Release 3 OLAP Connectivity

New Features Including OLAP-to-Relational Drill Through Provide
Customers with One Complete Web BI Tool for OLAP Analysis

Yellowfin, today announced the availability of Yellowfin Release 3, the
newest version of the leading query, reporting, and analysis tool for
the web. Release 3 provides web access to all major relational and
online analytical processing (OLAP) sources, intelligent navigation
between OLAP and relational data, and additional query options.

Yellowfin enables customers to get more insight into their corporate
data and leverage their investment in OLAP data sources. All this
through a single intuitive interface which significantly reduces the
complexity of report creation no matter where the data is sourced from.

"As relational database vendors increasingly integrate OLAP into their
products and operational BI becomes an organisational imperative, our
customers need to include OLAP as a portion of their overall enterprise
BI strategy," said Glen Rabie, CEO of Yellowfin. "Historically, this
has led to more work for end users who often need multiple tools, one
to analyse summarised OLAP data and another to reconstruct the OLAP
query in a relational environment, in order to get the full picture.
This reconstruction is tedious and difficult, requiring skills that
even power users lack, and puts a strain on information technology
staff who are forced to install and maintain multiple front-end tools
that often only access a portion of the overall data sources."

Yellowfin now provides OLAP access, thus enabling organisations to
better address the needs of users performing advanced analysis. By
accessing both OLAP and relational sources interchangeably and
providing OLAP-to-relational drill through, Yellowfin enables end users
to dynamically work with all relevant corporate data in a way they
understand, no matter where the information is stored. This erases the
need for multiple front-end tools, easing the burden for end users and
IT alike.

Yellowfin provides a web-based front end to Hyperion Essbase, IBM DB2
OLAP Server, Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services, Oracle OLAP and
SAP BW. This gives users access to powerful OLAP capabilities such as
true ranking, value filtering, sorting, sophisticated OLAP dimensional
navigation and data selection, and synchronised views of drillable
grids and charts.
