| collecting and analyzing data, BI creates detailed reports that provide 
| invaluable system analysis. The benefits of these analyses are prolific; they 
| can help determine better management of an organization, improve performance 
| and lower cost of service delivery, among other things.

Open Source Frees Up Business Intelligence

,----[ Quote ]
| In the past, open source projects were largely focused on horizontal software 
| platforms within an organization's infrastructure stack. Such projects have 
| been so successful that open source is now being extended up the technology 
| stack and into mainstream adoption to encompass business applications, 
| leveraging the open source LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Python/PHP/Perl) 
| stack. Today, there are open source projects underway for just about every 
| major infrastructure software technology imaginable, from content management 
| systems to defining a Business Process Execution Language (BPEL).       
| Synonymous with these trends, the Business Intelligence (BI) software market 
| has seen the launch of several new open source projects related to reporting 
| and data warehousing.
