We recently announced support the Essbase 18.104.22.168 for our entire product line including:
- ActiveOLAP for Essbase
- OpenOffice Add-in for Essbase
- OlapUnderground Outline Extractor
- OlapUnderground Advanced Security Manager
- OlapUnderground SubVar Manager
I can tell you how valuable our heavy investment in automated build processes is to our company but the proof lies in our ability to quickly provide support for new Essbase versions as they become available while continuing to support and enhance the functionality of our products against previous versions.
Additional value lies in the engineering of our Dodeca product where we have taken Essbase compatibility to a whole new level with our database abstraction layer. The abstraction layer allows us to target a single version of the Dodeca client to every version of Essbase from 6.5.3 to the latest 22.214.171.124. Further, the abstraction layer gives us the unique ability to retrieve data from multiple versions of Essbase into the same spreadsheet 'side-by-side'. Think about that the next time you have to roll out the latest patch of the Excel add-in to a thousand users spread around the world!
