browsing cube RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

     

    I have created a cube. I want to show it to the clients that do not have the Business Intellegence development studio or  visual studio installed. Is there any other method of browsing a deployed cube?

     

    Thanks in advance.

  • Probably the most widely available client is Excel.

  • Excel is a good choice. Also, you can generate a local cube file based on your data and let Excel connect directly to it. This way you can show the cube and data to the clients on a machine that doesn't run (and has no network connection to) the AS server.
