The Ins and Outs of Open-Source Business Intelligence


Webinar Abstract

You’ve surely heard of open-source software by now. More and more top-tier vendors write for Linux, the premier open-source operating system; even TiVo runs on Linux! These days, the open-source movement extends into the realm of business intelligence. Numerous open-source BI vendors offer a wide range of reporting and analytical applications for free*. *Of course, there’s no such thing as a free lunch: there are the services to implement the software, and those ever-present maintenance contracts.

Bottom line: there are some risks to open-source BI; but there are risks regardless of which route you take, open-source or closed. The key is to make sure you evaluate all reasonable options for your organization, and do so using a sound methodology. Register for this free TDWI Webinar to find out what’s happening with open-source BI and it can affect your overall application strategy.
