Open Source BI gaining ground, globally.
The BI Survey, carried out by the BARC institute of research, is the largest study of the business intelligence market that is provider-independent. The latest edition of the BI survey 9 is based on 2665 questionnaires, answered by users and consultants. The 23 leading BI-products were analysed, amongst them, for the first time, two Open Source Providers: Pentaho and Palo.
Barney Finucane, Lead Author of BI Survey 9, identifies the increasing use of Open Source Products in the Study as one of the key trends in the BI-Market: „More than 100 detailed Questionnaires were filled out by users of Open source products. That counts for an increase of 300% compared to last year. The majority of them being Palo users, for Palo we have received 60 filled out questionnaires from 15 countries.”
Kristian Raue CEO of Jedox, is pleased with the result of the Survey: „The participation of the Palo Users and their high ratings for Palo, acknowledge the path we have taken. Open Source Software has long ago established itself on the Bi Market next to proprietary software, and our concept of easy, fast and cost efficient BI- Solutions is a winner for any company. Plus, we offer a sustained concept with professional services, such as support and consulting, for companies who wish to realize large and sophisticated BI Applications with our mix of the Commercial Open Source BI Solutions.”
