Hi 

I am new to the forum, please forgive me if this question has been asked before. 

I am currently working as and Analyst and am wanting to start my own company. 

The idea is to target small business and provide them with Dashboards on past and current performance and then move into predictive modelling. 

I am not only looking to give insight but to also sit with management and look at developing the company further. 

I am currently looking for tools I can use, preferably opensource. 

I have looked at a few websites, Hive, R, Elastic, Kibana, PredictionIO and am totally confused as to which one would provide me the ability to do provide Dashboards and well as do data mining and analytics for clients. 

I really need advice. 

Thank you

This isn't meant to be exhaustive, but Tableau, Cliq, and InfoCaptor all play in the data viz, dashboard market.  None are open source but Tableau can be quite inexpensive and has an extensive user base. These also have limited predictive analytics functionality.

For predictive analytics open source with more extensive capabilities than those above the main players are R and Python.  For something less code based and more point and click look at PSPP which is the freeware equivalent of IBM SPSS.

What you haven't talked about that will be an issue is data prep and transform.  R, Python, and PSPP will all do this.  If you're faced with integrating may different data sources then R and Python will work.

Thank you for your input. Much Appreciated.
