Here is the official press release about Kognitio’s Pablo product: http://www.kognitio.com/next-big-thing-in-data-analytics-no-more-physical-cubes.
There is also a good whitepaper by Dr. Mark Whitehorn: http://www.kognitio.com/downloads/pablo_white_paper.pdf. Dr. Whitehorn is the author of “Fast Track to MDX” which was co-authored with Robert Zare and Mosha Pasumansky of Microsoft. Mosha was one of the originators of the MDX query language.
In the whitepaper, Dr Whitehorn says that “With Pablo, Kognitio has introduced a game-changing environment that enables business users to analyze all of their information from their platform of choice without the need for costly and time-consuming transformations and builds. Fast, simple and available 24/7.” This is quite powerful as Pablo uses the MDX query language to give users direct access from Excel and other BI tools to their data for train of thought type analysis.
