Many of the top reasons given for the use of open source business intelligence software is "lower costs." The question is whether commercial open source actually matters when it comes to lowering license and support costs. How real are cost savings? How much does BI software and ongoing support actually cost? A new analyst report, Lowering the Cost of Business Intelligence with Open Source, by Mark Madsen of Third Nature research and consulting firm, compares the software and support costs of traditional BI vendors with commercial open source BI from Pentaho.

Key questions explored in this research are:

  • What are the software and support costs for small, medium and large BI deployments?
  • What is the average cost per user based on deployment size?
  • How much does it cost to expand the use of BI to more users?
  • What are the cost savings when using a commercial open source BI solution?
