5 Best Linux Business Intelligence Suites
Even a small business generates giant quantities of data, and a good business intelligence suite helps you analyze and make sense of it all. When you have an accurate picture of where you are, you'll see where you can go, and any of these excellent Linux-based small business intelligence suites will take you there.
Business intelligence (BI) software isn't magical, so don't go throwing a ton of money into it before thinking about what you want to accomplish with it. All of these suites are modular, so you can start small and add more modules as you get familiar with the software and figure out what sort of information you want.
Measuring actual results is a surprisingly neglected task in a lot of businesses, and is often an eye-opener -- is the new product really paying off, and what markets is it doing best in? What are your real costs and rewards in supporting a branch office, or in clinging to old equipment, or in staying open on Sundays and holidays? BI can identify bottlenecks and inefficiencies, and show you what's working and what isn't.
