Open Source ETL and BI Tools Deployments to Grow Says Gartner

Filed under: Data Integration, ETL, Open Source — Tags: , — Olga Belokurskaya @ 10:25 am

In one of their latest press releases, Gartner made some interesting predictions regarding open source ETL and other kinds of BI tools. Though it’s early to put open source data integration platforms on the same level with complex proprietary solutions, the deployment of open source tools shows solid growth.

Gartner has pointed out the fact that open source ETL and BI tools are more frequently used by mid-sized businesses, governmental and public sectors. And many ISVs use open source BI solutions as the additional functionality to their own applications.

What is even more interesting: large vendors, proprietary commercial tools providers seriously care about finding the ways to address the challenges from open source data integration and BI offerings, as the latter become their lower-cost competitors.

Assuming this, I think that open source data integration, ETL and other kinds of business intelligence solutions have earned confidence from the business side, and are expected to become even more widely used in the nearest future.
