With DB2 Cube Views, an integral part of DB2 Warehouse Edition, DB2 UDB has become an "OLAP-aware" database. Many leading BI vendors have announced their support for DB2 Cube Views and offer bridges to exchange metadata. This presentation will cover a user case study investigating various BI frontends and how well they integrate with DB2 Cube Views. We will give an overview of the business case (enterprise reporting) and the history of the project, and review why the decision fell for DB2 Cube Views. We will describe the prototyping we did to test market leading BI tools and their DB2 Cube Views integration, and to ultimately make a recommendation which tool best suits the business needs.
