CEO Interview: Brian Gentile on How to Build a successful Open Source business

,----[ Quote ]
| Olliance will be running a series of CEO 
| Interviews throughout the year.  I sat down 
| with Brian Gentile, CEO of Jaspersoft ( 
| www.jaspersoft.com ), to get his thoughts on 
| Open Source software and current market 
| trends.  This is the first in a two part 
| series with Brian where he shares his 
| thoughts.

Open Source Is Smart Choice For Business Intelligence

,----[ Quote ]
| Analyst report points to growing interest in
| open source alternatives to traditional
| business intelligence tools
| The impact of the financial crisis has been
| to force companies to cut costs while also
| increasing competition for fewer customers.
| Against this backdrop, analyst Gartner has
| reported that interest in open source
| alternatives to traditional proprietary
| business intelligence (BI) tools has been
| steadily growing.


Open Source vs Commercial BI

,----[ Quote ]
| I've been collaborating with open source and
| BI experts Jos van Dongen and Mark Madsen in
| this process. Jos is the founder of Tholis
| Consulting in the Netherlands and co-author
| of the recently published book Pentaho
| Solutions. Mark is the founder of Third
| Nature and a fellow instructor at TDWI.
| One of the challenging aspects in evaluating
| open source is in assessing what is in the
| free community editions versus in the
| premium, supported editions. So while many
| associate open source with "free," how free
| it is really depends upon which project you
| are talking about. Pentaho seems to make
| more for free than JasperSoft and Actuate,
| for example.


Open Source Driving More Business Intelligence These Days

,----[ Quote ]
| As the Pentaho release asserts, the real cost of moving to open source BI is
| around the conversion and disruption of porting the reports.   Therefore,
| you're much better off going open source BI from the jump, rather than
| migrating later.


Open-source BI vendor Pentaho pushes migration deal

,----[ Quote ]
| Add open-source BI (business intelligence) vendor Pentaho to the list of
| vendors rolling out financial incentives to lure customers during the global
| recession.


Cloud Based and Open Source - Can Business Intelligence Get Any Cheaper Than

,----[ Quote ]
| So, yes, as I've lately discovered, there are open source, cloud based
| business intelligence solutions. With no more license fees to worry about,
| you can bring down capital expenditures. And with all the cost-saving
| benefits mentioned earlier, it would be very difficult to say no to such a
| solution. Not everyone needs this, but those who do should very well start
| studying their options. This is definitely one advantage you wouldn't want
| your competition have a head start on.


Pentaho and Jaspersoft Make the Case for Open Source BI

,----[ Quote ]
| The open source software business intelligence (OSS BI) community was greeted
| recently with significant releases from two of the highest-profile players --
| Pentaho Corp. (which markets a full-fledged OSS BI platform) and Jaspersoft
| Corp. (the proprietor of a commercialized version of the seminal
| JasperReports OSS reporting project).
