Hi Leandro,

Our enterprise edition is a great value. It's about a tenth of the cost of our proprietary competitors. As an enterprise customer, you get great customer support on our open source products, as well as additional enterprise only software including our Dashboard Designer which lets you design quick dashboards, Enterprise Console which lets you manage the BI Server, and we just announced a new Analyzer Enterprise product, which makes it really easy to build cross tabs and do drag and drop analysis online. As a paying customer, you also get certified builds, indemnification, and more.

That raises an interesting question... where does the free/open source end? i.e. I infer that the Dashboard Designer and the Analyzer Enterprise are NOT open source -- is that correct?

How does the OEM/Parnter program compare with the Enterprise option -- do you receive the same benefits?

All of our open source projects are available on SourceForge.net, we do have a few enterprise only products, which I listed above. The book's focus is completely focused on the capabilities that are available in our open source reporting products.
