BI tools

I'm currently looking for a BI tool to implement in my company. if anyone has an information about a study or anything related to comparison or evaluation of BI products,please let me know.
best regards.

RE: BI tools


And there are also all the main companies....

It very much depends on what you are trying to do, as to which BI tools you choose!

For example, for simple adhoc quering, we use Hummingbird BI-Query, and for more complex reporting and analysis, we use the Cognos Toolsuite.

Hope this helps,


RE: BI tools

thanks for your reply. I already tried the sites you mentionned. what I'm specifically looking for, is an evaluation or comparison between BI product. for exemple, I'm using SPEX evaluation (the free ones!) to know the strenghts and limitations of some products. The products that I want to compare are the following: Cognos series 7, Essbase,Brio performance suite, Crystal enterprise 8.5, Microstrategy 7 and WebFocus.
if you (or anybody else!) know or already done such study, please let me know.
thank you in advance.
best regards.

to sam76:

Also look at SPSS BI solutions at www.spss.com. ; They have some great stuff that is priced much less than others.  SPSS has great support and training programs too.

The SPSS products are web-enabled and are easy to learn.
