SimbaO2X Connector DiagramSimbaO2X is a standards-based ODBO to XMLA client-side driver allowing ODBO applications to work in a web services environment. Supporting all the major multi-dimensional standards, work in all the latest Windows environments, including 64-bit for applications using 64-bit ODBO. Connect to any client application, such as Microsoft Excel, via ODBO to virtually any XMLA provider/server, such as Simba MDX Provider for Oracle OLAP – XMLA Edition, Microsoft Analysis Services, SAP BW, Mondrian and many more.

SimbaO2X is a cost effective way to bridge the gap between an ODBO-enabled application and a data source exposed via XMLA. It allows Business Intelligence (BI) applications to connect to virtually any XMLA data source – standard or proprietary – in a web services environment. Many ISVs have chosen to simplify the process of adding XMLA support using Simba Technologies’ SimbaProvider SDK. This XMLA toolkit allows ISV’s to build a combined ODBO and XMLA provider quickly and efficiently, so that their OLAP products support industry standard APIs and can connect to products such as Microsoft Excel. The result is that their customers gain access to the greatest variety of OLAP and BI query and reporting tools in the market.
