6 More Best Free Business Intelligence Software

6 More Best Free Business Intelligence Software

Business intelligence software continues to be a hot market in this difficult economic climate. This type of software takes a company's raw data from its databases and turns it into signposts and mappings that helps firms make better business decision-making with the objective of generating additional revenue.

Business intelligence tools are typically used to design and generate reports from a wide range of data sources. There are a number of different types of business intelligence software. These include reporting and querying software, digital dashboards, process and data mining, business performance management, and spreadsheets. Digital dashboards offer the ability to monitor, measure, and manage corporate performance and real-time information.

A business intelligence platform includes three layers: a database layer, a business intelligence layer, and an analytics/performance management layer to make predictions on business outcomes and opportunities.

There are many large players in the business intelligence software market, offering proprietary products with big price tags. IBM, SAS, Microsoft and Oracle are a few tech companies in this market. However, there is a good range of open source software produced by smaller developers which offer a real alternative to these heavyweights. This article highlights some additional business intelligence software that was not featured in our earlier Business Intelligence Group Test. The applications identified here are worth investigating for any business which wants to access, format and deliver information to their staff, their customers, and their commercial partners.

Now, let's explore the 6 business intelligence software at hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, a screenshot of the software in action, together with links to relevant resources and reviews.
