"One of the benefits is that open source offerings are as good or better than proprietary technologies in terms of functionality and they are less expensive," suggested Sam Friedman, business intelligence practice manager for Column Technologies in a recent article by ECT News Networks. Friedman recently advised the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) at Camp Lejeune, N.C., on an IT installation that eventually led to the use of an open source offering. The Marines replaced SAP (NYSE: SAP) Crystal Reports with TIBCO Jaspersoft , an alternative business intelligence suite that deals with monitoring, managing and maintaining IT systems.
