Open Source BI Firms Refute SAS CEO's Criticism

Thursday, November 25, 2010

Open source business intelligence and data integration firms Actuate, Jaspersoft, Pentaho and Talend have angrily refuted SAS Institute CEO Dr Jim Goodnight's assertion that he, "Hasn't noticed [open source BI] a lot," and that, "most of our companies need industrial strength software that has been tested, put through every possible scenario or failure to make sure everything works correctly."

The founder and CEO of SAS Institute - the largest privately owned software company in the world - made his comments in an interview with CBR last month.

Yves de Montcheuil, VP of marketing at French data integration firm Talend, which competes with SAS Data Integration, told CBR Goodnight's comments are, "PR bullshit. One of the specific advantages of open source is that we have a wide community who help us test the software and add improvements."
