My company is looking for a BI intelligence suite to integrate with our CRM Web-based solution (the RDBMS is MS SQL Server 2000). Now, for our "captive" customer, we are using MicroStrategy Intelligence Server. MSTR costs much more than our CRM solution. All the well-known alternatives: Business Objects, Brio, SPSS and so on, have prices similar to MSTS's. Is there any good BI product that is designed for small to medium environments that has a low cost?


Sid Adelman’s Answer: Take a look at One-Up. It’s reported to have most of the functions of the big guys and has a much smaller price tag. http://www.FarSightTechnologies.com/.

Clay Rehm’s Answer: Crystal Decisions (formally Crystal Reports) has been a low-cost solution for a number of years. You may want to investigate them.
