Power View for Cubes

  • Comments posted to this topic are about the item Power View for Cubes

  • I have a major issue with your statement that 'sharepoint is a major component of the bi stack'.. ms would certainly love to sell more of it, but there's no way to justify the $30k for sharepoint server (last time i checked) for our company, let alone the hardware and other indirect costs for keeping it running.

    Would foundation work, or is there an intermediate version that is more-reasonable (and hopefully more-managable and lighter weight) ?

    Buying sharepoint to get a reasonable viewer for ssas seems a bit silly...

  • Does Power View add-in against multidimensional SSAS work with SharePoint 2010?

    thanks

  • Another drawback is the dependency on SharePoint to work with Power View

    Not necessarily true: you can work with Power View in Excel 2013. No SharePoint needed.

    However, I have not yet found documentation saying if Excel supports Power View on multidimensional or not...

  • Hi jcraigue@cox.net,

    Thank you for your post, I agree with you and I stated in my conclusion that a drawback is the dependency on SharePoint to work with Power View.

    As I know there is not intermediate sharepoint version to support powerview.

    Another alternative is use sharepoint in the cloud. and there are some sites offering that in a reasonable price.

    Even there are some test achieve to run without sharepoint.

    You can look at http://sergeluca.wordpress.com/2012/04/01/running-powerview-without-sharepoint-not-recommended-not-supported-but-that-works/

    As said is not supported but works.

    I really hope to see some changes from the part of MS in this aspect.

  • Analysis Services is powerful and easy to use. I don't get why they can't put a good web bases viewer on top of it.
