For over a decade XLCubed have provided the most flexible and accessible Analysis Services client tools for business users. We now connect to a wide range of additional data platforms including SAP HANA, Oracle Essbase , Microsoft Power BI and relational databases.
XLCubed grew from the reporting requirements of an Oil sector pricing solution in the early 2000s. An analytics layer had been developed in Microsoft Analysis Services, with a standalone slice and dice tool and comprehensive reports. Despite that it seemed all the users wanted to do was ‘save to Excel’ for further analysis or formatting.

We remain Excel-centric, but with governed and highly scalable Web and Mobile deployment. Our partners and users love the inherent flexibility, and we now provide support for a growing range of data sources.
