There has been a lack of substantive data about the state of open source in the business intelligence and data warehousing market. In this presentation noted industry analyst Mark Madsen will present the results of recent market research on adoption profiles and characteristics for open source BI/DW.
This research surveyed adopters of open source to understand their reasons for adoption and the benefits they experienced. It also captured user demographics to identify who is adopting open source for BI/DW, where they are deploying it, and how it’s being used. Two highly experienced open source BI practitioners, Bruce Belvin (President, Monolith Software Solutions) and Jay Webster (President and COO at Consorte Media) will describe their BI implementations, their criteria and selection methodology, and share best practices.
