LXer: 4 money-saving, open source business intelligence suites

Published at LXer:

Let's dispose of a popular BI myth right now, and that is the myth that spending a giant wad of money on fancy BI software will do you any good. It won't. BI software suites are marvelous tools, but like any tool they are no better than the people using them. The most important tools are brains, knowledge, and the time to do the job right. Equally important are good data, so you may need to invest some resources in improving your data collection and organization. Don't skim over this step, because as the brilliant Charles Babbage said: "On two occasions I have been asked, 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question."
