James Dixon’s thoughts on commercial open source and open source business intelligence

Gartner and Intelligent Enterprise on the costs of open source BI systems

with one comment

A good article by Doug Henschen (I got it right this time, Doug) reviewing part of a presentation from Gartner’s BI Summit last week. Here is Doug’s first statement:

The five-year cost of a typical, 500-seat BI deployment ranges from about $150,000 for an open-source system to just over $1 million for the full suite from SAP BusinessObjects, IBM Cognos or Oracle. In between these two extremes are Microsoft, pure-play BI vendors ($522,000 to $674,000) and software-as-a-service (SaaS) BI vendors ($582,000).

    I took a few minutes to make a graphic summary of Doug Henschen photo.

    It seems pretty interesting to see (and more explicit !)
