Hyperion announced its own play in Enterprise Search with a partnership with Google OneBox. However, Hyperion claims that its integration is differentiated from most others because it gives users and ability to construct BI queries right from the native Google OneBox search box, and not just to pull up pre-existing, indexed BI reports and information.
“If report or view does not exist for a search query then our software fires off SQL and MDX against Essbase or other MDX-compliant sources like SAP BW,” Hyperion said.
