Does xcelsius access data model in MS sql server 2000

have the following scenario: I need to create a dashboard which will be accessed through a Microsoft Office SharePoint server portal. This dashboard will be used for analysis of Agencies and Underwriters; they should be able to drill down to policy level details.

The data will originate from a Data Warehouse (Relational Schema) which resides on a Microsoft SQL server 2000 platform.

Q) Does Xcelsius work off a relational model or does the data model need to be converted to a Dimensional Star schema? Do you have to create Cubes?


Q) It was mentioned in the book that Xcelsius can connect to a Microsoft SharePoint server using web part, however there is no information in the help menu to do that task?


My thought) I was also thinking that the data model build on MS SQL SERVER 2000 can be used to create a Universe, which then can link to Live Office using Query as a Web Service (QAAWS) and used to build Xcelsius model. (Does one have to go this route, or can one access the data model created on SQL SERVER 2000?)

Any Feedback)
