cubus outperform EV Analytics Product Highlights

Lean Administration

To enable a user to connect to an OLAP database is simple and could be done in 3 minutes. Open the EV Explorer web-based Administration Interface. Configure a data source (this is where the OLAP server is installed) and define a database connection (this is the name of the cube to work on). All other metadata will be imported by EV itself and is immediately available to the end-users. Any change in the underlying database structure is available when the end-user opens the report or view next time.

Virtual Calculations

Virtual calculations allow you to set up additional calculations without any knowledge of the underlying OLAP technology. Simply select on a “pocket calculator” style interface and create new KPIs, variances and other calculations using basic mathematical operators or enhanced statistical and mathematical functions.

Sort & Select

With Sort & Select you can make EV Server do the work for you.

Create the report of your top ten customer based on specific database values like revenue or margin or the bottom 5 report products that generated most negative profit within the last month.

Look for all negative variances or products without revenue in the last 3 months. If you have 100 products or 100,000 products, EV server will do the work for you – without programming simply by selecting from a menu.

Easy navigation

cubus outperform EV Analytics is the most intuitive user-interface to OLAP databases. When a user connects to a database or cubes, the first view is automatically predefined and the user can start to navigate within the dimensions.

You simply click on a dimension in the columns, rows or offgrid to select specific elements. You can pivot dimensions and change the column and row definitions simply with drag & drop operations directly in the table or the graph.


Ad-hoc Analysis with cubus EV

With cubus outperform EV Analytics creating your own ad hoc analyses is simple. You can select, search and sort all of the members, attributes and data that you need with just a few clicks. Best of all, you don’t need to start from scratch each time. You can get a jumpstart with predefined analyses that you can easily adapt to your requirements, save for later use, or even share with your colleagues.

Based on your own preferences your analysis could be done by using tables, graphs or both (tables and graphs) at the same time. You can perform free slicing and dicing in your multidimensional database in tabular or graphical form. The user interface is very easy and intuitive. Changing columns and rows, stacking dimensions, performing asymmetric selections or using built-in statistical functions is possible without any technical knowledge.

You can also dive deeper into your data. Create forecasts or run what-if scenarios to test the potential impact of different actions.

With drill-down, drill-through and drill-across functions you can get to the bottom of variances.

Analysing data and reporting is one of the most important topics for all organisations. It is necessary to understand what happened in the past and the current situation your company is in.

Many years ago analysing data was much easier than today. In the past you were happy if you could retrieve your data from software systems. You have to trust that the data is the right data. Today, there are so many data sources, data warehouses, relational databases, additional data in excel, some data here and some data there. However, you can be sure you have the right data from your system. Compelling dashboards provide executives with the latest insight into all important KPIs so that they can make fact-based decisions.

Today it is difficult to get an overview of the most important KPI or display meaningful information based on your data. The challenge is preparing the data in tables or charts. Visualisation of data is very important and so many new chart types only add to this complexity. A development in the area of data visualisation is the ability to create dashboards.

Using the canvas object you are able to personally design your own dashboard or provide dashboards for your end-users. Simply by re-using existing views you can create a set of different graphical and tabular representations, combined on one screen and connecting to one or more different data sources you can provide a comprehensive overview of complex business situations.



Why settle for endless tables and tedious spreadsheets? You’ll surely win over your colleagues with the attractive charts and tables in cubus outperform EV Analytics.

Formatting the table provides you with endless freedom in representing your data in an attractive form and turn it into valuable information for your report recipients. You may apply formats not only to rows, columns and individual cells, but also to specific generations of a database dimension hierarchy or an individual set of members. Formatting will automatically follow the position of the element on the report, which means that there is no rework in formatting when changing the selection of your report.

The wide range of different chart types including, bar, line, area and many more can be used in combination with tables to effectively visualize data so that users can see the big picture.

After the report has been created you can define a subscription to schedule the sending of report packages via Email. These packages can be configured to be sent at any time in PDF or Excel format.
It is also possible to view reports on tablets and smartphones using EV Anywhere.

For Reporting issues it is important to create meaningful reports. How to do? Have a look at our chapter Visual Information Design.

visual information design

In times of BigData and IoT there are more and more information. One question in this context is how to provide the information to the recipient.
Providing the information so that the recipient can analyze and interpret the data fast and meaningful. Some identities like Stephen Few or Edward Tufte (in the DACH region Dr. Rolf Hichert) deal with this under the name Information Design. With cubus Visual Information Design we would like to assist you by optimizing your reporting system.

Read our series “Visual Information Design – How to Create Meaningful Reports” and / or get in contact with us to In addition, we could provide you some contact.

User-driven development

cubus product development is user-driven. For us, making software relevant to users includes asking what features and functions they require. So before we even laid out our priorities for EV we asked EV customers what improvements were at the top of their lists. We discussed possible enhancements at various round tables and invited all EV customers to participate in the process by casting their vote or entering their preferences on a special online voting platform.
