BI Updates

I am testing some BI tools:

Microsoft Proclarity
Microstrategy
Panorama Novaview

The POC built on Microstrategy, but need to build a few more reports and such. Next week Panorama will be in working on the POC. Microstrategy is good, but the client and configuration are rather arcane. The web based tools are great, which is most of what my consumers will be using. If they have to use the Desktop product they will be confused, which I don't think is going to be a good fit for us. Microsoft Analysis Services, which are what the other 2 products are the front end to. The cubes and metrics need to be built, which is what I will be doing over the next week.
