__NOTOC__ Applix Inc. was a computer software company founded in 1983 based in Westborough, Massachusetts that published Applix TM1, a MOLAP database server, and related presentation tools, including Applix Web and Applix Executive Viewer. Together, Applix TM1, Applix Web and Applix Executive Viewer were the three core components of the Applix Business Analytics Platform. (Executive Viewer was subsequently discontinued by IBM.)
Applix did business in over 50 countries with over 3,000 customers worldwide.
On October 25, 2007, Applix was acquired by Cognos. Cognos rebranded all Applix products under its name following the acquisition. On January 31, 2008, Cognos was itself acquired by IBM.
Prior to OLAP industry consolidation in 2007, Applix was the purest OLAP vendor among publicly traded independent BI vendors, and had the greatest growth rate. TM1 is now marketed as IBM Cognos TM1 and the latest version, IBM Cognos TM1 10.2, became publicly available on September 13, 2013.
