Hi to all.
I work for a company that uses from 2005 , SSAS of MICROSOFT.
Now we are using SSAS 2008 R2 and as soon as possibile, we will migrate in SSAS 2012.
For this we are also studying new features (Especially TABULAR MODEL and DAX).

We built 10 very good cubes that helps to give data to our users.
Users use a lot of excel and little reports, that are reading OLAP CUBES.

It all works fine,,,but Now we want more.

We want to build very good DASHBOARDS, based on OLAP CUBES.

Is there any good product that can create any kind of ANALYSIS AND DASHBOARD , based on OLAP CUBES we built in these years ???

At the moment we are happy of MICROSOFT SSAS , we do not want to change with other different product like QLIKVIEW - COGNOS- BOARD - BUSINESS OBJECT...and so on

We shoukd like a product that has an own console , and in this console we can build an analysis of data and dashboard and drillthrough , and charts all in a solution...reading existing our OLAP CUBES


Our company is in EUROPE (Italy...) ...
We found a product called TARGIT similar to what we desire...
(www.targit.com)

Can anyone knows other and can advice us ????

We did some experiments with Power Pivot DASHBOARD or REPORTING SERVICES, but we ' d like to have something more powerful and intuive product for final smart users,
(even if something i did with POWERPIVOT)...


Regards in advance.

PerformancePoint is a pretty good dashboarding tool, but I believe requires Sharepoint. If you are going to be using 2012 you might also want to look into PowerView. It is considered a data visualization tool, not sure if it is what you want but it might be worth a look.

Ciao.
Many thanks for yoru reply.

Yes Performance Point seems a good solution,
Yes it needs of SHAREPOINT 2010 or next year SHAREPOINT 2013.
It should a good solution, especially for who has OLAP CUBES MICROSOFT solutions yet.
it depends how much does it costs...... I think too much....

I saw also DUNDAS DATA VISUALITATION , it seems very powerful.
But we are in Italy, and if i need support , it is very difficult to have...

Do you know it ????

I saw also TARGIT , a Danish product, and i discover it is sold also with an italian company,,,

I did good experince with PowerPivot in Excel but the problem is that is a self bi solution.
If you ned to share , you need the same of a non standard version of SHAREPOINT....


I hope someone else , did other good experience and i hope they will write to me.


Many thanks agains have a good day.

Now i go to bed.

Ciao.

I forgot to tell you that , i will inform better about POWERVIEW.
I saw a demo in Milano in march 2012, but it seems a very young product.
And the same it requieres MICROSOFT SHAREPOINT.

Ciao again.

I heard Datamicron's Performa is a good tool for such things. It doesn't depend on SharePoint, it is standalone application, and connects to SSAS cubes and PPivot as well. No coding is required. everything is done with drag and drop, they have BI Reports, which is simple drag-and-drop based on cube. For dashbaording they have dashboard designer which is very easy to use, again no coding required, dashbaords can be seen in browsers. It can integrate SSRS pages in itself, and you have good control over drillthrough etc...

Hi.
Thanks you very much for your comment.
I added the page of this product in my favorites and as soon as possibile , i will read about it.

You understood very well what i need, a product that helps us to create adn share without SHAREPOINT , reports and especially Dashboards.
Only problem could be learning it with a brief course or specialist...
Will see..i think i will install a DEMO on my PC and i will study a little..

Regards.

PS. It depends how much is it ...

Have a good day.

Make sure to check out Power View a little better. It's very intuitive and with a few clicks you can make a compelling dashboard.
If you have Excel 2013, PowerPivot and Power View run natively inside your Excel sheet, so you don't need SharePoint anymore!

Hi.
Thans for your comment.
Yes i am reading about PowerView and i used Power pIVOT yet.
I will install Excel 2013 so i will test both together...
But even if i was able to create dashboards in PowerView , how can i share these Excel workbooks with others users ???
I do not know want to build only dashboard for me...but i have to produce something that a group of users have to use in our network...
How can i do that without SharePoint ???
I do not know...
