Making the case for Open Source Business Intelligence

by William Laurent, William Laurent, Inc.Tuesday, November 10, 2009

For those of you that live in the world of performance management dashboards and advanced business intelligence, a new e-book on BIRT (short for Business Intelligence Reporting Tools) may be a required read.  Based on the Eclipse IDE, BIRT has become a top choice for IT managers looking for the highest ROI for their BI solutions.

The e-book summarizes current trends in open source business intelligence and the latest in rich visual application development.  Perspectives are given on how BIRT helps both IT and business managers achieve a greater level of scalability, integration, interoperability, portability, and enhanced user experience in their web-enabled decision support applications and reporting. In addition, several brief case studies give the reader an idea of the different type of solutions that are possible by deploying various Actuate BIRT tools.

The e-book is available for download at Information Management Magazine’s e-book portal at http://www.information-management.com/ebooks/ .
