About this paper
The proliferation of an open-source option for just about every facet of a firm’s analytics environment may seem appealing from a cost standpoint. While efficiency gains are possible, there’s more to it than that. Read this research brief from the International Institute for Analytics to discover the recommended process for determining when and for whom open-source tools make sense, and where the support, resilience and scalability are worth the commercial costs. Topics include data and analytics cost drivers, stages in the modernization of commercial data storage, open-source options for the analytics platform and why new methods of calculating total cost of ownership are needed now.
