  • Microsoft Data Analyzer 2002 was a data analysis software for Microsoft OfficeXP.[1][2] Even though it was a stand alone application and was not available in any Office XP bundle, it was a part of the Office XP suite. However, it was not updated beyond version 3.5[3].
  • ProClarity Corporation is a softwarecompany specializing in business intelligence. The company was founded in 1995 and is based in Boise, Idaho. ProClarity&apos;s products integrate tightly with Microsoft SQL Server, specifically Microsoft Analysis Services. Among ProClarity&apos;s more than 2,000 global clients are AT&amp;T, Ericsson, Hewlett-Packard, Home Depot, Pennzoil QuakerState, Reckitt Benckiser, Roche, Siemens, USDA, Verizon, and Wells Fargo.On April 3, 2006, Microsoft announced that it agreed to acquire ProClarity.[1]

  • Two cube browsers that complement each other well, unsurprisingly, are Microsoft Excel and SQL Server Reporting Services (RS). Excel is very flexible, while RS can deliver tailored reports, with flexible parameters and easy links to drill down/across to other reports.PerformancePoint, which is a great tool for delivering visual data to a thin client. It has functionality somewhere in-between Excel and RS and many features not available in either. PerformancePoint supports (very rudimentary) ad hoc cube browsing, but it is very powerful at delivering visual and interactive data. So PerformancePoint is ideal for presenting visual data to naive users, and for data savvy users there can be a great deal of “data flexibility”. PerformancePoint can deliver this in a semi structured way, so that users don&apos;t drive a cube browser, rather, they drive a dashboard of their dataExcel Services is essentially an Excel spreadsheet accessed through a thin client, Internet Explorer
