Open Source BI Case Study Slides Are Posted
We had a good open source session at the May TDWI conference. After I spent some time reviewing history, projects and adoption practices we got to the good part: short case studies, demos and a panel session with representatives from BIRT, JasperSoft, Pentaho and SpagoBI. I particularly enjoyed the panel session where we had some great insights from the panel on what's happening in this space and some of the problems people are facing. I also liked Cindi Howson (the most knowledgeable person on the subject of BI products I know) asking some basic but pointed questions that were on the minds of the mostly non-OSS audience.
Special thanks to Paul Clenahan and Jason Weathersby from Actuate/BIRT, Nick Halsey and Beth Mazur of JasperSoft, Lance Walter and Nicholas Goodman of Pentaho, and Grazia Cazzin and Daniela Tura representing SpagoBI. They did a lot of work and came at their own expense to represent their projects at this conference.
All of their overview and case study slides are available at Third Nature.
