I have chosen this topic for today because I always enjoyed a free tool, when I needed. Of course, these are useful especially for start-ups, small companies, small projects or in the beginning stage of development. But why not use them even for large projects, in large companies? I was impressed when I found a few years ago that Facebook uses MySQL as their internal RDBMS. A free, open-source one for a huge company?!
Somehow, this fact opened a new set of horizons for me, new understanding and accepting horizons: you do not need huge amounts of money to do amazing things.
Another reason which motivated me to write this blog article was the spectacular "financial show" we can see world-wide, for about... 10 years? Wow! And maybe we (people around the world) are richer than we realize, but we do not use enough the free resources we have!
Well, this is why I will point you to a useful page I found with a couple of interesting suggestions of free tools, both standalone and online, for business analysis: see it here.
