Benefits:

Interactive data analysis and reporting with sub-second response times

ContourCube allows your users to analyze data, build and print reports interactively simply with a click and drag&drop (with sub-second response times). Users can dynamically interact with data: move rows and columns, filter data, drill-down, roll-up, pivot table and get all possible reports from one dataset. ContourCube will make millions of calculations simultaneously and show new subtotals and totals instantly.

Embeddable OLAP for any database application

ContourCube allows you to integrate OLAP functionality into your General Ledger, ERP, CRM and all other database applications. No additional multidimensional database system (OLAP server) is required. Just substitute the ordinal grid to ContourCube and link it to your data source. You don't need hard programming of hundreds of reports for your application anymore. Your users will be impressed with the way your native windows or web application enables them to understand their data. You will save time and leave your competitors behind. Distribution of this functionality in your application is royalty-free. Embedded OLAP is easy to install, zero administration and not expensive.

Affordable Web based OLAP solution

ContourCube allows you to create affordable Web based OLAP solutions. You can place ContourCube on a Web page, link it to Contour microcube or directly to a corporate data source and all your users will get highly interactive reports from anywhere without additional software and training. Only one license for unlimited numbers of users is needed. It's very suitable solution for creating public information sites and extranet or internet corporate reporting systems.

Rich multidimensional calculations

ContourCube provides rich built-in calculation algorithms palette for business and statistical reports. This palette was based on experience of our users and includes all popular algorithms:

  • Sum
  • Count algorithms

  • Weighted average
  • Last algorithm for balance sheet and inventory reports
  • And many others

You can also create your custom calculations using the powerful multidimensional formula language. ContourCube allows you to add calculated fields and edit formulae at runtime dynamically, so users can make OLAP calculations in a manner similar to the use of Excel.

High quality data visualization

ContourCube provides tools for report formatting at design-time and for producing presentation quality reports at run-time. Developer and user can change all colors and fonts and add Titles and Headers containing explanations as well as Footers with footnotes.
