 About XMLA

The XMLA Council is made up of a number of leading Business Intelligence and Business Performance Management software vendors that have announced their support and backing of the XMLA Specification, a set of XML message interfaces that use the industry standard SOAP to define data access interaction between a client application and an analytical data provider working over the Internet. The council has jointly published the XMLA Specification that allows corporate developers, third party tool vendors and other parties to query analytical data providers in a standard way. This new standard is expected to accelerate the adoption of Internet business intelligence software and increase the market for those technologies. To learn more about XMLA, please visit
