Pricing takes a bit of work to nail down; it pays to talk to the nice salespeople and let them help you sort it all out. All of these BI suites have free software downloads, and free community support. All of them offer multiple modules, custom support and engineering services, and training and documentation. So the answer to “how much will it cost” is always “it depends.”
Software licenses and custom engineering are especially “it depends.” Your total first-year costs can easily hit $10,000 for a small shop. Presumably you’ll spend less on support and training after your first year. Still, that’s considerably less than the traditional proprietary offerings from SAP, IBM Cognos, SAS and other old-time proprietary BI vendors.
The 5 solutions mentioned: Jaspersoft, Spargo, Pentago, Openl, Actuate.
