PLEASE NOTE: As soon as we update the Component with new features every new week the information might be outdated, please check our latest news.

The common BI Suites are targeted over large enterprises and middle companies. Along with complexity of their deployment and launch cycle, their price is often completely unaffordable for small companies and startups.

As small companies and startups are seeking for affordable OLAP tools, which are simple to get up online and running, they are frequently requiring additional services to get the cheap tools integrated and operated properly.

Flexmonster Pivot is a reporting tool at first; however, it is also the most lightweight OLAP ever that is capable to work on client-side without any necessity of installation or configuration. While common OLAP servers require you to prepare the data for OLAP cubes, Flexmonster Pivot can load cube report from plain data like CSV or a database table, which is exported (statically or dynamically) as CSV. Using its in-memory capabilities, the component visualizes data instantly, allowing you to configure measures and dimensions on the fly. And what’s more important, at no additional integration cost at all!

The analysis couldn’t have been more cheap! You can just source the plain CSV file (which includes Excel files as well, since you can export them as CSV) and get your cube report up and running for further analysis – locate the trends, fetch or calculate specific data etc. Check out our Flexmonster YouTube Channel for complete guides!
