considered by a Panel of Open Source Software suppliers and the
1. What Business Intelligence
(BI) Software is HMG using at the moment (to the best knowledge of the
panel and audience) and what Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) could
it be using for BI? Are they better than non FOSS and can they do more
for less? What are the costs? Reliability? Security?
2. What training/skills are required by HMG to use the FOSS BI
versions? Are there enough people out there with the skills? Are
Graduates equipped with the right training?
3. What would be the ideal way of implementing FOSS BI across HMG?
