Open source BI solutions offer some advantages but there is a long way to go to resolve issues that prevent market adoption. Some open source products are free to use, but vendor support is not free. Other open source BI tools are free for the community edition, but not for the enterprise.

If a business intends to provide self-serve BI tools to its employees for daily use and data discovery, it must provide true data democratization. The business user cannot be limited to viewing static dashboards developed by dashboard developers with only the most basic drill down and filtering capabilities.
