This might be a very big deal: Oracle just bought Hyperion for US$3.3 billion. The most obvious effect is that the Business Intelligence market has now fewer players then ever and Oracle is now a very serious player indeed.
I wonder what this will mean for the defunct JOLAP? Could Oracle bring it back? It would be really nice to have one standard API for OLAP, even if it is limited to the Java programming language.
