Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a Cofounder & Technical Advisor here at the BeyeNETWORK. Having covered the business intelligence and data warehousing industry for more than 15 years, I'm looking forward to a more interactive form of communication with all of you. Please share your comments and thoughts!



I've been approached by a couple different people this past week all asking what I think about MySQL as a Business Intelligence solution. I am not sure that MySQL is in a position to take on the database world presently owned by Oracle, DB2, Sybase and others. But with that said I do think there is a role for MySQL in the business intelligence arena. I believe it can find great traction as an embedded solution and under the right circumstances it can power applications, reporting systems and other segments within the space.

Companies like Infobright have found solid value in MySQL to build what they define as an analytics data warehouse. MySQL is the worlds most popular open source database. With Sun Microsystems recent purchase of the database I can't help but wonder if that will spur on its growth and generate greater enterprise level interest or if it will slow things down.

I'm off to TDWI this week and will be sure to get more information on its future from the folks at Sun .
