Added my vote. We are a partner out in HK and have been hearing from many of our clients/prospects that an Essbase connector would be great!

A connector to Essbase would be really great. Currently we have to export data from Essbase using a report script (either Essbase proprietary language or MDX), thus creating a text file, and then loading the text file. It should be possible to use Analytic Provider Services to extract data directly from Essbase (this way different BI tools access Essbase - an MDX statement is generated and fires the data request). Implementing this should be a foundation to create connectors to other multidimensional data sources (e.g. Microsoft Analysis Services, TM/1, Jedox).

Adding my vote to this as well.  We'd love to see this capability and functionality implemented into Alteryx to really accelerate our Finance and Tax functions.

Please add my vote. Alteryx offer great opportunities to eliminate manual work done via Hyperion and Essbase.
