Corvu alternatives

Is there a web site for SAS?

We use SAS and Crystal and have used a tool called CyberQuery. My
preference is SAS.

We have been using Corvu for several months and have not been very
impressed with ease of use or speed. Does anyone out there have any
experience with another package other than Corvu?

Thanks in advance.

The other major players in the BI realm are Cognos, Information Builders and Business Objects (formerly Crystal Decisions). Way back once upon a time I used PowerPlay from Cognos (now evolved into Cognos 8 BI) and it worked very well. Business Objects XI rel 2 has integration packages for major ERP packages...would be nice if there was one for Vantage. All I remember about Information Builders was that Focus (now WebFocus) was really expensive and overkill for us.

My experience with any of these is that ease of use has to come with time and all have a significant learning curve. It's a lot like the engineering people picking a CAD package and then wanting to stick with it.

Also, Corvu is very tightly tuned for Progress - better so than plain ODBC access - so other BI options may not be any better for performance.
