Recently, I interviewed Steve Miller from OpenBI and Nick Halsey from JasperSoft for podcasts on DashboardInsight about open source business intelligence and the changes that have occurred in the market over the past couple of years. 

As open source solutions are becoming more mainstream it is always interesting to get insights into changes that have occurred and views on where the market is headed.  One area highlighted, which crosses over what is being seen in the general BI market, is the increase in usage of column oriented databases to increase capabilities regarding speed of analytical processing.  Not only have more vendors appeared within the market, but more vendors are building their data warehousing platforms using open source technologies on the backend.  This lowers the TCO and offers end users more bang for their buck. In addition, open source BI vendors are partnering to provide end users the ability to analyze larger data sets faster increasing the benefits of BI to the business.

In addition to the podcast for Dashboard Insight, OpenBI, JasperSoft and Infobright have put together a joint Webinar about this topic.
