dbChannel Delivers Castanet-Enabled OLAP Channels

InterNetivity released dbChannel, an application to deliver Castanet-Enabled OLAP channels via the Web.

dbChannel was developed under a technology partnership between InterNetivity and Marimba.

dbChannel allows information publishers and other organizations to deploy data analysis capabilities through the use of Castanet-Enabled OLAP channels. It is now available for download from InterNetivity's Web site.

The scalability of Castanet, combined with dbProbe's support for thousands of simultaneous users, offers businesses a new option in deploying OLAP tools to a wide range of users.

"The use of channels greatly simplifies the deployment of OLAP capabilities via the Web," commented Fred Dixon, president of InterNetivity. "The partnership with Marimba results in a perfect mechanism for automatically delivering up-to-date analysis capabilities to widely distributed users."

A companion product to dbProbe 3.0, dbChannel is a wizard that lets administrators convert a dbProbe PageCube (multi-dimensional datacube) into a Castanet-compatible applet and publish the applet to a designated Castanet transmitter. Users can then subscribe to this OLAP channel and receive automatic updates of data cubes with no manual interference required.

dbProbe 3.0 is the latest version of InterNetivity's Web-based data analysis tool. It is designed specifically to address the needs of information publishers, OEMs, and enterprises wishing to deploy decision support capabilities to large, often mobile, user audiences.
