Hi,

I am working with the open source version of Pentaho BI.
I want to create reports that will be hosted on my server
then I want my clients to connect to my server to view reports and charge them for this.

What kind of licensing do I need?
What are my obligations to my clients?

thanks.

What kind of licensing do I need?
You can run BIServer as Community Edition for your clients to connect to. However, I'm not a lawyer, so you should check with your internal policies and your lawyer to determine what licensing you need (some companies require software be supported so that they have someone to yell at...)


What are my obligations to my clients?

Have your lawyer read through the license and explain it. Different licenses have different requirements.
