This project is read-only.
No, SSAS is not required in order to take advantage of SDX simplified dialect of LINQ and SSAS Entity Framework Provider (tm).
But SSAS is recommended for large data volumes.
See UsageExample project installed into "%ProgramFiles%\Agile Design LLC\SSAS Entity Framework Provider \UsageExample\" folder to get an idea of how to configure SSAS Entity Framework Provider to work with offline cube files without SSAS.

See Complete OLAP infrastructure without Microsoft Analysis Services to get a general idea.
In order to create an offline cube file you will need MS Excel starting from version 2003.
See About offline cube files for instructions how to create an offline local cube file.
