Create reports in the browser with the instantOLAP Designer

platform independent

instantOLAP is completely implemented in Java and therefore works on almost any platform – from Linux or Windows servers to mainframe systems. Use your existing hardware, just scale from a server to a bigger one: instantOLAP runs wherever you want it.


instantOLAP has been used by many corporations for years and is designed to work with large, complex and heterogeneous databases. instantOLAP has no limitations, such as linking only a database, a star schema or the like.

Extremely fast

First, use instantOLAP as a ROLAP system and, if necessary, expand your model with just a few clicks of the mouse around high-performance MOLAP cubes. Or use both technologies simultaneously as HOLAP. instantOLAP uses a powerful SQL generator for adhoc queries and an impressive compression technology to aggregate data into MOLAP cubes. The simultaneous use of both techniques is possible without restriction – just as you need it.

Easy installation

Download and install instantOLAP in minutes and instantly create your own OLAP cubes and reports. Our standard distribution installs everything you need, including a server, a demo database with sample reports and a free user license!

Easy connection

You prefer to create your reports with Microsoft Excel? Class; the instantOLAP server is not limited to the use of our web portal. It also supports the XML / AStandard for connections to Microsoft Excel and other OLAP clients, is compatible with the Microsoft ODBO driver, and communicates with a subset of MDX, the de facto default query language for OLAP servers.

T·A·P GmbH

T·A·P GmbH was founded in Hamburg in 1992 by Thomas Thiel, Rainer Aldag and Thomas Pusch. We started with the evaluation of raw data from the trade (scanner data). Since there were no suitable tools at this time, we developed our software SCAMIS (c) based on the Express OLAP system. This enabled the customer to carry out complex, multidimensional analyses independently on the basis of raw data.
Our data warehouse concepts are adapted in direct cooperation with the customer’s departments. Thus, the data warehouse is created from so-called DataMarts. Our technology offers the possibility to create these DataMarts completely transparent for the user, from the system level up to the management report.
By using instantOLAP, we can offer the same range of services in the data warehouse sector as companies such as: Business Objects (SAP), Oracle, Cognos, QlikView and others. Thanks to the intelligent middle tire structure of instantOLAP it is possible for us to implement free prototypes within a very short time at your location, or via the Internet, without having to re-process or migrate your data structures.
As a system house, we offer partial and complete solutions in these areas. We see ourselves as a service provider that performs an important bridging function between your users and the IT products (hardware/software etc.) on the market. If a required component does not exist or does not meet your requirements, we are also able to develop a new one. The range of services offered by T·A·P GmbH encompasses the provision of process-neutral infrastructures, the development, implementation and operation of applications and the management of complete processes at all levels of value creation. We see our core competence in the field of OLAP and the management information systems based on it.

In order to meet the demands of the market, T·A·P GmbH was divided into individual business units and restructured in the summer of 2013. This has given rise to the competence areas of BI T·A·P, in which all our BI and data processing skills are bundled, and T·A·P products and projects, which includes product maintenance and planning as well as development skills.
In addition, a strategic division of tasks was introduced in the areas of technology and commercial activities.
And we continue to grow…
