Oracle to Buy Hyperion for $3.3 Billion

max909 Hyperion acquision makes Oracle complete Microsoft (52 comments)

The perons who usually keep their eye on Business Intelligence world would definately know that Microsoft SQL Server 2005/2000 Analysis Services (MSOLAP) is the most widely used BI tool around there, in fact Cognos is the grand father of all of these tools, but when we speak about the number of Installations in the market MSOLAP is the king.

This acquision bring MS and Oracle head to head. Recently Oracle has not been very successfull with its OLAP tools, although people usually keep Oracle DB at back and use MSOLAP at the front.

Tweaking Hyperion make it use Oracle dependent and/or update it as fast at MS does would be good decision for them. But again this is really a long term planning and lots of stuff has to be done.

Mansoor writes "DPAD as has put up some long stuff to close once and for all the PS# vs XBox360 (XBox360 vs PS3) discussion. Both the 360 and PS3's CPUs are heavily stripped down compared to what most of us are probably using on our desktop computers to view this article. Both consoles are labeled as 3.2GHZ, but they don't offer performance comparable to that of a typical Athlon 64 3200+ or better than even an Athlon XP 2800+ CPU. The CPUs inside the Xbox 360 and PS3 are "In-Order Execution" CPUs with narrow execution cores, whereas what we use on our computers are classified as "Out-of-Order Execution" CPUs with wider execution cores"
