MS Analysis Services
Pivot table component offers the connection to Microsoft Analysis Services in two ways: XMLA and Flexmonster Accelerator. XMLA is an industry standard for data access in analytic systems. In case you need advanced features, e.g. faster data transfer, try Flexmonster Accelerator for Microsoft Analysis Services cubes – a special server-side proxy that helps you to increase data loading speed from server to customer’s browser.
Follow our detailed guides on how to work with MS Analysis Services:
