Open source is becoming a required option for consideration in many enterprise software evaluations, and business intelligence (BI) isn't exempt. This blog is the interactive part of my Open Source expert channel for the Business Intelligence Network where you can suggest and discuss news and events. The focus is on open source as it relates to analytics, business intelligence, data integration and data warehousing. If you would like to suggest an article or link, send an e-mail to me at open_source_links@ThirdNature.net.

The MySQL May conference keynote videos and presentations files are all posted so you can download the ones you're interested in now. Embedded below is the video and slide deck for my keynote on Thursday.

The gist of this presentation is that business intelligence and analytics are the #1 IT spending priority, BI technology is becoming a commodity, open source BI and DW tools are maturing, and the supporting stats about open source BI and DW adoption.


If you want to look at the slides at your own pace, they're embedded below:
The open source stats are from a survey on open source BI adoption I've been running for a couple months, sponsored by Infobright and Jaspersoft. You can see a recap of this keynote plus some more stats and short talks by the CEOs of Infobright and Jaspersoft in "The State of Open Source BI and Data Warehousing" webcast at the MySQL web site.

We'll have a paper discussing the results of the adoption survey available for download soon. Look for it some time next month.
