Roundup of Open Source BI
I liked this roundup of open source BI products. More thorough description of some of the items I listed in an earlier post, and a little more discussion on the topic. He hits all the bases, with BI, OLAP and even the data warehouse server appliance companies Netezza and DATAllegro. I interviewed people from both companies for an article on hardware appliances for data warehousing, but it's been shelved for a couple months, just long enough for me to hear through the rumor mill that the third vendor I talked to was having difficulty with their current round of venture funding.
He also talks about Pentaho, which I want to dig into more before I write anything about them. From what I've seen (mostly some articles and their web site), they look promising. The question is whether their model will work, and what they really want to accomplish.
