TM1 & TEMTEC Initial Thoughts

I was really surprised and excited when Applix bought Temtec.
It follows the consolidation of the BI market trend e.g. Microsoft buying Proclarity

The thing I always loved about Temtec was the speed. Its the fastest web product that I've seen.
It also had the best printing capability I've seen of an OLAP web product.
It relies on a small client install through the web browser though.

Be interesting to see how they integrate TM1Web with Temtec.

Temtec is great for adhoc querying but relies on ODBO for writeback so I expect them to put some heavy work into making Temtec integrate with the TM1 API.
