Simba Technologies Announces Release of SimbaO2X 4.5

SimbaO2X 4.5 Supports Excel 2013 and Windows 8 - Connecting ODBO-based Business Intelligence Tools to Multi-dimensional XMLA Data Source

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/31/12 -- Simba Technologies Inc. - industry's choice for standards-based relational and multi-dimensional data access and analytics on in-memory, cloud and big data - announced today the immediate availability of SimbaO2X 4.5. SimbaO2X 4.5 offers improved usability and performance enhancements enabling access and high-performance analytics in popular ODBO-based business intelligence tools such as Microsoft Excel 2013.

SimbaO2X 4.5 includes Excel 2013 and Windows 8 support, leveraging enhancements and new functionality in Microsoft's latest Office release and OS. Excel 2013 allows users to more intuitively explore data and create richer data visualizations, using PivotTable's enhanced interface and features such as Excel's new timelines functionality to allow users to easily view data trends over time. SimbaO2X is the de facto solution for connecting OLE DB for OLAP (ODBO) based applications, such as Microsoft Excel, to XML for Analysis (XMLA) based data sources from multiple vendors.

"SimbaO2X 4.5 adds support for Excel 2013 and Windows 8, as well as other new features, enabling sophisticated data queries, deep analysis and detailed reporting with key business findings," said Cathy Dumas, Simba's Director of Program Management, Analytics. "Users can leverage new features like timelines and other functionality introduced in Excel 2013 when working with their XMLA-based data. SimbaO2X 4.5 supports both the 32-bit and 64-bit version of Excel and is the recommended solution for high-performance BI on XMLA-based data."

SimbaO2X is used by both proprietary and open source software companies to enable data analysis with popular applications - such as Microsoft Excel - which utilize the ODBO data standard to communicate with other software products in the marketplace. SimbaO2X enables ODBO-based applications like Excel to be used in a web services environment to query and analyze data over networks or the Web. Data queried is stored in multi-dimensional data stores using the widely-accepted XMLA and Multi-dimensional eXpressions (MDX) data standards. SimbaO2X, in effect, seamlessly converts ODBO-based queries to XMLA.

SimbaO2X is built upon Simba's proven, standards-based data technologies, incorporating the company's expertise and deep domain knowledge. Simba's ODBO and XMLA technologies are used by the majority of software vendors who have MDX query language data providers for connectivity to Microsoft Excel. SimbaO2X is the only solution for directly connecting Mondrian to Microsoft Excel.

SimbaO2X is fully compliant with ODBO, XMLA and MDX query language data standards for wide interoperability with numerous products and solutions in the marketplace.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it. Managing data includes protecting it, indexing and classifying it for true, long-term management, compliance and E-Discovery.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds.

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments.

We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...
