Do we have any mobile/tablet applications were users can connect to "Essbase" cubes?

The two that come to mind based on advertising are OBIEE and CXO Cockpit. I'm sure there are others.

I know that cockpit is a legitimate word, but why would anyone name a product cockpit?

Yeah, I'm like a broken record on this product. I am a big fan in case it wasn't obvious.

Cameron,

Dodeca runs on mobile via Citrix; it is a good solution if you need the full power of a managed spreadsheet solution on a mobile device.

The Dodeca/Citrix solution has been tested on Windows/Linux/MacOS/iOS(iPad and iPhone)/Android. We also have a wrapper for Dodeca to run natively on Mac OS.

what about if i want to view it from the EAS side? Is that possible? I'm the hyperion admin and i basically use web links to access workspace, shared services and EAS. Would that be accessibly by an ipad or any other tablet device?

If you want to use EAS from an iPad, you will have to use a remote desktop into your server. There are a bunch of free remote desktop apps for iPad and iPhone.

Oh great but...

Oh great. That sounds 100% better than what others have been saying. But would I be able to access the web applications though? Since Hyperion only works on IE and Firefox, i won't be able to right? Both IE and Mozilla haven't released an app for iOS devices. Are any patches available for fixing this issue- opening up hyperion to Safari or Chrome.

If i got the Microsoft surface device, it would work them right? Or are there other Hyperion limitations?

Not putting words into TImTows post but I think he is saying buy a remote desktop like software for the ipad, or iphone or... and then remote into a pc that has ie or mozilla etc which you can then use to access EAS. So in essence remoting into a location that you could use.

maybe I am confused...so carry on.

PD, you are exactly right. The remote desktop apps are free, but it will probably require you to setup you iPad to tunnel through your VPN (which I haven't done yet as I mostly use my iPad for the excellent Garmin Pilot aviation app with it's geo-referenced flight charts and instrument approaches and the in-flight weather and radar)..

Why do all that... With remote connect i could remote to my essbase server and use the EAS console directly instead of the web app. But yep i was think that of that as well. My server got the IE and Firefox on it so i could access my shared services and workspace right there as well. But i'm not sure as i haven't tested it out yet.

A company called Talvis developed software that lets users ask their iPhone or iPad a question and it queries Hyperion Essbase and verbally returns the answer. See for yourself at www.talvisllc.com/savant/

charts

Not fully out of the gates due to limited demand, but we can do essbase backed charts into a mobile app with A3 Modeling. We can drop read-only grids as well.

What are you intending to do with the data on what is going to be a pretty small screen?

Level of interest?

No score for this post

What is your level of interest in such a product? Do you know of anyone else interested? My market reserach kept telling me that people didn't want to do ad hoc on an iPad, and moreover, people doing ad hoc in companies weren't the same people with iPads. For this reason, I shelved a product that could connect to cubes and provide ad hoc capabilities. A working prototype literally exists but for business reasons I couldn't justify investing additional resources into it.

Given enough interest, I have considered releasing a Lite / Community Edition of such a product that would be freely available, with support available as a purchased option.

Thanks,

Jason

This has been my experience too. Interactive charting seems roughly the line of functionality.
