Blox Team Pics and Why we choose Alphablox

Our Blox Team is currently developing a solution that will use the flexibility and the power of both Open Standard solutions and most specially IBM DB2 Alphablox. As of now, we have decided to limit the amount of information that will be discussed regarding this project but I can tell you several reasons why we choose IBM DB2 Alphablox over other BI Tools.

10 Simple reasons why we choose IBM DB2 Alphablox:
1) It's component-based, we call it Blox. (lower's TCO for enterprise owners)
2) It has ready made analytic components. (ideal for rapid development)
3) It's positioned under the CUSTOM-BI tools. (robust! very important)
4) It's easy to rapidly assemble analytic applications using Java™ Server Pages.
5) It's based on the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) architecture.
6) It's deployed on a Web application server. (accessible to bottom line users)
7) It's based on an Open Architecture.
8) It's integrated with Excel, PDF and other format commonly used.
9) It's a marriage between relational data and cube data in one package.
10) It's an IBM product. (Support is strong)

Here are some of our pics as we discussed our on-going plans:





Here are a few screenshots of what we're discussing at the messy whiteboard:





Next, we'll discuss the other BI Tools available in the market and our five cents regarding them.

It is only supported on Tomcat 3.2.4 which is not good.

Well am using AlphaBlox to develop some analytic solutions, and am noticing the downside of it.I was using chartBlox to create some charts and to my surprise I ahve to put all the query's which fire the chartBLox in the jsp itself.The documentation nothing about how to seperate them.I want to provide just resultSet to chartBLox which can fire them.Do we have any method, had similar problmes with reportBlox then I use rsultSer and RDBResultset which unfortunately ChartBLox does'tn supports
any cue guys?
