|Subject: ||Seagate Analysis/Info7 versus SAS OLAP solutions?|
|Content-Type: ||text/plain; charset=US-ASCII|
Has anyone had any experience using Seagate Analysis and Seagate Info7 with real life data? Impressions? How do they stack up against the OLAP and reporting offerings from SI? What caught my eye is that Seagate is giving away the Analysis software for free (no time limits, no catches, it seems) as well as a 50 seat license for Info 7 which appears to be an OLAP server. Looks very interesting, perhaps as a fat but free (fat-free?) client for summarised data (produced by SAS...). See http://www.fetchseagate.com for details - you'll be greeted by a dog, hence the curious URL.
