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.

using google to find anything SAP related is rather tiresome because all that gets returned is unhelpful interview questions ;(

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...)
