Hi all. I'm currently evaluating on the visualization tools mentioned above. I need some help here. I would like to know
1) does qlikview support OLAP cubes? It does but limited only?
2) Omniscope does not support multidimensional cubes whereas Tableau and Qlikview does?
3) Among the 3 tools, which of the tools is better in supporting large dataset?
4) Omniscope does not run from server and have platform apps? The supporting of multi-table access is limited?
5) Qlik does not have free viewer/reader like Tableau's free reader and Omniscope's free viewer to view the publish workbook?
Thanks in advance. I really need the information.
2) NOT TRUE: Omniscope has some limited support for cubes, Tableau supports cubes (SSAS), Qlikview does not
3) Tableau 7.x since it can use both RAM and disk as Virtual RAM (can be slow); Qlikview limited by size of RAM. Omniscope has limitations (mostly because of Java) when used with large datasets
4) NOT TRUE; Omniscope can be used as server, if you have correct license (you will get what you pay for)

Thanks for your reply. Can I ask a few more questions regarding Jaspersoft?
1) If compare Jaspersoft to Omniscope and Qlikview, which tools support large data better?
2) Jaspersoft has to pay annually for the license or perpetual?
3) Jaspersoft run on server? The supporting of platform apps is only ipad? Does omniscope have any platform apps like ipad/iphone or andriod?
4) Can jaspersoft support multi-table acess?
5) Is omniscope and jaspersoft both using 64-bit in-RAM DB?
What about Python or Perl libraries? Or SAS graph?
Hi - Below is the post I made to LinkedIn last night...
Answers to your Omniscope questions below. Full disclosure, my company is a Visokio value added reseller partner servicing media, marketing and marketing services orgs globally.
* Omniscope does not support multidimensional cubes whereas Tableau and Qlikview does?
Omniscope does indeed support multidimensional cubes.
From Visokio's website: "The OLAP cube data source provides connectivity to MDX-compliant multi-dimensional data secttructures (cubes) such as Microsoft SSAS and other cubes".

* Among the 3 tools, which of the tools is better in supporting large dataset?
Omniscope's scalability and performance are driven to a great extent by the hardware i.e. RAM at play.
Read about Omniscope’s scaling and performance here: http://bit.ly/KvSC54
And here: http://bit.ly/KVI2dR
That said, Omniscope's file-based solution offers up a uniquely powerful opportunity for a "Multi-File Reference Architecture" where 'chains of self-refreshing IOK files can play multiple roles e.g. central management of low weight time slices of data, a central datamart for multi-source data assembly and refresh, central master reports configured and auto-refreshed for specific groups, etc.
And, lastly, while not directly related [it is useful], Omniscope’s reporting data flows can also include ‘by-product’ write-back of output to database tables, enabling the population of new/existing databases/warehouses with scrubbed, transformed data from Omniscope. This is powerful.
* Omniscope does not run from server and have platform apps? The supporting of multi-table access is limited?
Omniscope can indeed run from a server and the support of multi-table access is, if anything, exceptional.
More about Omniscope’s server editions here: http://bit.ly/KVHftm
And a little about Omniscope’s ability to support multiple tables via DataManager: http://bit.ly/zW8nGo
Here’s a doc describing the power & value of Omniscope’s multi-file architecture: http://bit.ly/PWQOX4
I hope this is useful. Reach out to me w/ questions at any time.

Omniscope imports from any MDX-compliant cube (principally MS SQL Server SSAS & Oracle Essbase, plus other independents)
