Oracle Essbase is one of the industry-leading multi-dimensional online analytical processing (OLAP) servers, providing a rich environment for effectively developing custom analytic and enterprise performance management applications. By leveraging its self-managed, rapid application development capabilities, business users can quickly model complex business scenarios. For example, line-of-business personnel can simply and rapidly develop and manage analytic applications that can forecast likely business performance levels and deliver "what-if" analyses for varying conditions. Oracle Essbase supports extremely fast query response times for vast numbers of users, large data sets, and complex business models.


There are two ways for CXO_Cockpit to connect to Essbase. The architecture pictures below describe the two different ways for CXO-Cockpit to connect to Essbase.
