The XML for Analysis (XMLA) Advisory Council announced the success of the first public XMLA Interoperability Event. The goal was to provide detail on the XMLA specification and to further demonstrate XMLA’s importance as a leading open industry standard in the business intelligence and business performance management marketplaces. The event showcased early release versions of XMLA-compliant products from 18 business intelligence and business performance management solution providers. The event, which took place at The Data Warehouse Institute (TDWI) conference in San Francisco, May 11–14, followed the XMLA Council's second successful interoperate workshop, which was hosted by Simba Technologies in early April.

"XMLA has the potential to dramatically impact both the business intelligence and business performance management categories and drive the development and implementation of new applications deployed through Web service architectures," said Rich Clayton, vice president of business performance management product strategy at Hyperion.
