Palo is an open source OLAP platform that offers almost all of the advantages of equivalent products that cost tens of thousands of dollars but with a software entry price of zero. Models can be built with a free edition of the software that will satisfy the needs of most small to medium sized businesses. When the business grows though, the software can grow with it.


Both TM1 and Palo are OLAP (on-line analytical processing) products. To learn more about OLAP click here, or visit Wikipedia.
