The XP3 platform gives business users the ability to effectively and efficiently leverage virtually any data to create, distribute and apply best practice analytics in persuasive Microsoft® PowerPoint presentations and Excel reports. XP3’s flexible, scalable design allows the deployment of as much or as little functionality as the business environment requires.
XP3 can be implemented as a standalone solution, a centralized solution with existing Microsoft® Analysis Services cubes, or leverage XP3’s full functionality by implementing its data loading and integrated data warehouse functionality to meet all the information management requirements.
XP3 Suite can be used as a stand-alone solution with data residing on laptops or desktops. With XP3 Data Tools the user can:
- Easily import, transform, and aggregate data from virtually any format without pre-processing or cleansing.
- integrate multiple data sources into combined cubes so that business users can easily incorporate multiple data sources on a single chart, graph or report.
- Load and manage custom data views with hierarchies and segments that accurately reflect the different views of data.
- Use XP3 Presentation Builder or Report Builder to apply best practice analytics in Microsoft® PowerPoint or Excel
The presentations and reports can then be easily shared throughout the organization.

With the XP3 centralized solution business intelligence analysts, category management analysts and sales teams will simply:
- Connect to existing Microsoft® Analysis Services cube(s)
