Do you like to decentralize your data access? Have a hard time coming up with "standard" dimensions for everyone? Are your users pretty astute about their data requirements? If you answered yes to these questions, you may like FAST Radar from FAST. This product gives users the ability to create custom dimensions (what they call "hierarchies") and triggered "gauges". I can see business users customizing and enjoying the gauges, which consist of pop-up links, pop-up GIFs and custom emails occurring for specific data profiles - like displaying a yellow traffic light and an intranet URL to order product when inventory is low in a region.
FAST Radar is a ROLAP solution. In the user interface, FAST Radar has a rather slick way for a user to easily build predicates for a query.
