Saasabi a cloud based, Software-as-a-Service OLAP application (Bill Trestrail)

Saasabi is a cloud based, Software-as-a-Service OLAP application. Saasabi enables analytical processing of data into multi-dimensional models, which can quickly and easily support complex reporting scenarios and advanced insights.

Saasabi is designed to be compatible with existing on-premises OLAP engines, meaning that you should be able to easily port models across from those engines, use existing tools (such as SQL Server Reporting Services, or OLAP grids such as Infragistics PivotGrid) to access the data and embed results and model design into your applications.

Bill Trestrail, CEO of Saasabi will present along with Joris Dries, from Resonate Solutions who is real world example of how Saasabi can be used to deliver value to customers.

Resonate Solutions will also give a demonstration of their Azure based product, Pulse. Resonate Pulse is an on-line (or SaaS) platform that brings all your data together in one place. However, the critical uniqueness of Pulse lies in its ability to merge, navigate, analyse, discover, present and act on structured and unstructured data. has been piloting using Saasabi as a OLAP component to their solution.
