Cubeware presents a new analysis engine for corporate performance management in collaboration with IBM

Rosenheim, 3 November 2016 – Cubeware GmbH, BI pioneer and a leading vendor of business intelligence and performance management solutions in Germany, is now offering, in collaboration with IBM, a new analysis engine for the Cubeware Solutions Platform C8 (CSP C8): the CW1 database powered by IBM. Cubeware is thus giving companies the demonstrably most powerful MOLAP database to model all analysis, planning and reporting applications from a single source.


BI systems change in the course of their operation: new departments are added to the system; user numbers increase; specialist and technical applications are established; analysis and reporting components are enhanced with planning functions; individual BI and PM processes are standardised.

All this often involves a great deal of effort for companies: individual systems need to be integrated, standardised information processes established, additional new tools purchased and licence extensions have to be performed in the database structure. This is very frequently unaffordable for small and medium-sized companies. Their digitalisation efforts are inhibited.

The CW1 database powered by IBM in combination with CSP C8 now gives companies the demonstrably most powerful MOLAP database and the complete tool set for BI and PM projects from a single source. This addresses in particular the needs of small and medium-sized companies that can now deploy a single, end-to-end system as a solution for specialist departments and for company-wide consolidation. Costly integration and transformation processes are eliminated when BI systems are further developed, and investments made in digitalisation is protected.
