More on IBM versus Essbase

I wrote earlier that IBM announced it would no longer sell its DB2 OLAP Server. It looks like the move by IBM might mean that they plan to focus on their own OLAP product:

in fact it’s more to do with their current focus on their Cube Views product, which in his opinion is more likely to be IBM’s future OLAP direction.

So DB2 Cube Views will be the main IBM OLAP product?
