Hi,

I am interested in tracking down some third party OLAP reporting tools that can be used with SAP BW.

Two which i am aware of in Intelligencia (http://www.it-workplace.co.uk/) and ERP-Link (http://www.erp-link.com/html/product/product-overview-iNetBI.asp)

Any links / suggestions you guys can offer would be very much appreciated

Regards

Chris

Cognos 8 BI Reporting allows reporting via native SAP drivers, and also allows you to use the SAP namespace for its authentication.

There's always the SAP business partner index...almost as useless as a google search, but not quite:

Cognos 8 could be a good choice but it wouldn't be the "natural" choice. SAP has bought Business Objects (BO). BO has a good MDX connector, so longterm BO would be the beter choice. (Although technically speaking BO is not a "third party OLAP reporting" any more...)
