It’s well known that traditional, proprietary business intelligence solutions are expensive. Further, the lack of pricing transparency can make it difficult for users to understand just what the actual costs are, which can often lead to users buying more capabilities than they need.
It’s also known that many choose open source business intelligence software for "lower costs." But what are the real facts and does commercial open source actually matter when it comes to lowering license and support costs. How real are cost savings? How much does BI software and ongoing support actually cost?
This webcast will detail a new analyst report, Lowering the Cost of Business Intelligence with Open Source, by Mark Madsen of Third Nature research and consulting firm, which compares the software and support costs of traditional BI vendors such as IBM, Oracle and SAP with commercial open source BI from Pentaho.
Key questions answered in this webcast include:
- 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 real the cost savings when using a commercial open source BI solution?
Attend this webcast to see the actual results from the report and learn how you can save on your next BI project.
