Seagate Software has launched Holos 7, code-named Columbus.
The development environment has a new architecture, Open OLAP, which can join separate data stores from products such as Arbor Essbase and Microsoft Plato, which is due in the third quarter. In effect, Holos 7 works with system compliant with the OLEDB interface, analysing the joined datacubes as if they were a single virtual cube.
David Brocklebank, Seagate's European marketing director, said: "We recognise that Plato will commoditise the OLAP marketplace. Many users will move to SQL Server and Plato but they will still need an application development environment like Holos 7." Holos 7 will ship this month at the same price as Version 6. The entry level system costs around #50,000.
