Readers Sound Off On Linux

Though more and more packaged BI vendors have announced support for Linux in their reporting tools this year, readers of Business Intelligence Pipeline say they still see databases as Linux's sweet spot in the BI world.

Though more and more packaged BI vendors have announced support for Linux in their reporting tools this year, readers of Business Intelligence Pipeline say they still see databases as Linux's sweet spot in the BI world.In our most recent Voting Booth poll, we asked readers to name the BI application area where they see Linux gaining the most traction in the coming years. The largest group of voters, 43 percent, named databases as the most likely set of tools to flourish on Linux. That's not overly surprising, considering that databases supporting Linux have already established themselves in the market.

Over the next few years, at least, readers see databases holding that lead. Reporting tools and data integration tools tied in the voting, with 23 percent each of readers saying those types of applications will gain the most traction on Linux. Analytical tools, with 11 percent of votes, came last.

The last year and a half has seen a swarm of Linux-related announcements from reporting vendors, including Business Objects, Cognos, MicroStrategy and Hyperion. A set of other open-source entrants has entered the reporting and analytics market this year as well.
