Top 17 Free and Open Source Business Intelligence Tools

Searching for business intelligence and data analytics software can be a daunting (and expensive) process, one that requires long hours of research and deep pockets. The most popular enterprise BI tools often provide more than what’s necessary for non-enterprise organizations, with advanced functionality relevant to only the most technically savvy users. Thankfully, there are a number of free and open source business intelligence tools out there. Some of these solutions are offered by vendors looking to eventually sell you on their enterprise product, and others are maintained and operated by a community of developers looking to democratize BI.

In this article we will examine free and open source business intelligence software, first by providing a brief overview of what to expect and also with short blurbs about each of the currently available options in the space. This is the most complete and up-to-date directory on the web.

Accounting & Finance Textbooks – Open Textbook Library

Contributors: Kioko and Marlowe

Publisher: Rebus Community

Financial Strategy for Public Managers is a new generation textbook for financial management in the public sector. It offers a thorough, applied, and concise introduction to the essential financial concepts and analytical tools that today’s effective public servants need to know. It starts “at the beginning” and assumes no prior knowledge or experience in financial management. Throughout the text, Kioko and Marlowe emphasize how financial information can and should inform every aspect of public sector strategy, from routine procurement decisions to budget preparation to program design to major new policy initiatives. They draw upon dozens of real-world examples, cases, and applied problems to bring that relationship between information and strategy to life. Unlike other public financial management texts, the authors also integrate foundational principles across the government, non-profit, and “hybrid/for-benefit” sectors. Coverage includes basic principles of accounting and financial reporting, preparing and analyzing

Real-time analytics is becoming increasingly important as businesses are processing more and more information about their operations and customers. In just one example, Gartner projects that in three years, the average person will interact more with bots each day than their romantic partners.

But it is not enough to collect all of this information. Companies will need to analyze it — and that is where data science and business intelligence tools come in. Open-source software is overtaking proprietary platforms, so I have compiled a comprehensive list of free and open-source BI tools in alphabetical order.

Business Intelligence/Introduction – Wikibooks, open books for an open world

The availability of documents in machine-readable form is a basic requirement of the system. Typewriters with paper-tape punching attachments are already used extensively in information processing and communication operations. Their use as standard equipment in the future would provide machine-readable records of new information. The transcription of old records would pose a problem, since in most cases it would be uneconomical to perform this job by hand. The mechanization of this operation will therefore have to wait until print-reading devices have been perfected.

Business Intelligence and Business Intelligence System[edit]

Rapid advances in computer technology allow business intelligence (BI) systems to provide managers with access to a tremendous amount of data. To function these systems combine complex front-end software with ETL capabilities that extract enormous amounts of data. At the heart of these systems are huge enterprise data warehouses that can populate a
