Combine the Power of OLAP with Ad-Hoc Self-Service Reporting


Published on

The biggest challenge with OLAP is the lack of ad-hoc flexibility to generate reports on top of the data that was not previously brought into an OLAP cube.

Join us for a webinar where we will demonstrate how users can benefit from the power of OLAP for ad-hoc reporting and analysis. With Panorama’s new universal data connector, end users can connect to any data source and start analyzing it instantly while OLAP models are automatically created for them behind the scenes.
