"A recent study by Dresner Advisory Services (DAS) explores many facets of the BI sector. In particular, it offers several insights into the open source BI marketplace.

"or example, the study found that open source BI vendors have young customer bases (the largest percentage of adoption happens to be within the last two years), with the government and technology verticals showing the fastest growth rates of open source.

"In addition, 62 percent of users surveyed had adopted open source within the last two years. In comparison, those adopting Microsoft, Oracle and SAP business intelligence solutions had only 15% of their customers who had adopted these tools within the last two years. Similarly, while the big boys saw fewer deployments compared to the previous year, the open source upstarts experienced more deployments. Overall, DAS noted generally fewer new deployments, although more organizations were choosing to expand the scope of existing BI implementations."
