Every day a growing number of organizations are attracted by the promise of Open Source software: low cost full featured solutions that will help drive down the total cost of ownership of an IT infrastructure. Software like Linux, OpenOffice, MySQL and Firefox are considered mainstream solutions nowadays and are being widely adopted. But how about solutions for Business Intelligence: are BI Suites like Pentaho or Jaspersoft already mature enough to compete with the established proprietary vendors? Can MySQL be used as an analytical or a Data Warehouse database and if not, which alternatives are available? This two day seminar not only gives you a complete overview of the Open Source BI market, but also shows how mature the various parts of the BI stack are and how they can best be applied in a new or existing BI infrastructure. What makes this seminar really unique is the large amount of live demo's and Case Studies to help you getting started right away.
