DynamiCube is an open, interactive OLAP tool, implemented as an internet-enabled
lightweight ActiveX control. DynamiCube makes it possible for you to build Internet
and client/server applications that provide end users live interaction with massive
databases, exploring, and summarizing staggering quantities of data instantaneously.
Imagine senior managers or CFOs, for example, trying to make sense of the data in
a multi-GB database with millions of data points. Let's say that they wish to do some
holiday analysis to find what people were buying and when they were buying it. They wish to see
different levels of price brackets and time frames to find a common trend. Using this information,
they want to see if it would make sense to provide discounts to valued customers, potentially lowering
the prices by 10% for every 10 purchases. All of this has to be done in 3 months so that they can
make detailed decisions on next holiday season's grocery shopping frenzy.
You can see how a scenario like this would require a very sophisticated analysis system. This
could present time-consuming delays that might result in a less than optimal strategic decision.
Overall, it could be very expensive.
With a DynamiCube-powered application, such as the example above (pictured above),
the user can instantly view any quantity of data in any of the millions of ways being considered at
the moment. Just drag and drop to reorganize the dimensions. Blink. View the new results.
With DynamiCube, your development time is highly leveraged. In one hour, you can build
powerful, flexible decision support capabilities in a typical database-driven, hard-coded
reporting application. Don't waste your time coding report after report.
The power of a multidimensional OLAP tool, coupled with the Data Dynamics MicroCube
persistent data storage technology (built-in), yields astonishingly small, manageable data
objects. Without connecting to the original data source, users can modify and download their
own specific view and store it locally, analyze it, manipulate it, e-mail it, or use it
dynamically in a company presentation.
What happens, from your perspective, is this: with virtually no coding, you provide
users with the SQL query path to any ODBC, ADO, DAO, RDO, or BDE data source. DynamiCube
builds and displays results at the user's PC. Users perform as much interactive analysis
as they need locally, including data filtering, drill-down, roll-up, addition of user data
and calculations, data marking, dimensional pivoting, ranking, print/preview, and graphing.
All of this power is available, without impacting production databases or requiring changes
to current relational or multidimensional database systems. In fact, if your customer has not
yet invested in a multidimensional database solution, you could save them a gigabuck or two
Just imagine the new capabilities you can deliver:
develop decision support systems for intranets, or efficiently provide live, interactive
data on the web.
