Dear list,

I wonder if I could get recommendations/reviews/experience for analytics
tools that can work off Postgresql database. I guess ROLAP will be the
natural solution, but is there a MOLAP engine that can work with
Postgresql database?

But established vendors' products don't seem to include support for
Postgresql. (I may be wrong so I'm seeking opinion.)

For example, Business Objects OLAP doesn't seem to work with Postgresql.
Also, this may not be directly related with the database, but could anyone
offer some opinions about Business Objects Crystal Enterprise Express?

What we want is a ready-made capability to do usual business intelligence
stuff, including analytical processing, ad-hoc report generation, allow
users to dice/slice and drilldown/rollup the data, etc.

Is there someone who uses Postgresql for data warehousing or data mining
application? If so, what tools (ETL, ad-hoc reporting, etc.) work well
with Postgresql? Is there any plans or projects for Postgresql in this
application?



Thanks.
