What user interfaces or tools (commercial and/or open source) can query a star schema model (Ralph Kimball dimensional model)? So for example, if we have X fact tables, and Y dimension tables, and Z cross reference tables, we'd like to query a random fact table. If you are aware of such tools, can you provide a reference of each.

We are familiar with the IBM toolset where I work. IBM's Cognos toolset can read star schema, especially since IBM recommends star schema for mart design.
