In addition, ActiveAnalysis is now capable of using ADO.NET data providers such as SQLite and SQLCE. Another new feature is flexibility in setting custom schemas with support for in-memory schemas.

ActiveAnalysis is a .NET analysis component that allows developers to rapidly embed out-of-the box OLAP, data visualization and BI features using charts, pivot tables, and data visualization for Silverlight, Windows Forms, and ASP.NET.

Commenting on the release, Shalini Kumari, the Product Manager for ActiveAnalysis said, "By allowing access to different action types, developers can benefit from SSAS actions, which enhance the analysis capabilities of business applications. This, together with improved support for multiple database types greatly optimizes business operations of ActiveAnalysis.”

“ActiveAnalysis provides many analysis capabilities provided by the big names in BI. Its brilliance is shared equally between the powerful analysis engine and the elegant user interface.
