Firstly we would like to thank all our customers and partners for making the first half of 2016 such a successful period. We've seen some great new customer wins and significant expansion in some of our major customers. We wish our customers and partners a fantastic summer break in the coming weeks, and we look forward to the rest of the year, which promises to be a particularly busy and exciting time for XLCubed.
Autumn will see the launch of XLCubed 9 which will be our most significant product release for years, possibly ever. Version 9 opens XLCubed to numerous other data sources including SQL, PowerBI, and many of the Big Data platforms. It also introduces responsive, device optimised dashboards, and a new set of mobile apps. The initial response at recent preview events in Copenhagen, Geneva and Lille was exceptionally positive and we're looking forward to bringing it to market!
For more information on XLCubed, or to arrange an evaluation or web overview session please contact us.

DACH XLCubed Conference, Cologne
We are pleased to announce "XLerate 2016" - the first XLCubed user conference for the DACH region. The event is being organised with our strategic partner pmOne and will be held in Cologne from 28-29 September. The conference aims to further strengthen the user community in the region, to share project experience and best practice, and to give early awareness of the key additions in version 9. The event will also prove a great opportunity for customers to voice their input on future product direction, and meet key staff from both XLCubed and pmOne on a more informal basis.
