In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
Pentaho Named as One of the Best Open Source Software Projects by Network World Blogger

ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 03/05/09 --


-- Pentaho Corporation, the commercial open source alternative for business intelligence (BI), was named as one of the best open source software projects in a recent Reader's Choice list by Ron Barrett, Network World blogger.

-- The selection cites functionality, innovation, and easy transition from Microsoft PerformancePoint.

-- Selections were based on the volume and passion of comments from readers.

-- In the write-up published on March 4, the author, Ron Barrett, calls Pentaho a "really good alternative" to Microsoft PerformancePoint, noting that Pentaho provides "all the features of a full commercial BI package."

-- Pentaho's first-in-class integration of business intelligence with Google Maps, and iPhone integration are cited as examples of innovations that Pentaho has delivered to the BI market.


"It's fun to win against the big BI megavendors with disruptive pricing, but it is even more satisfying to beat them with superior product. In four short years, we've been able to deliver better product with one-tenth of the staff of our proprietary competitors. It is verification of the commercial open source model and the value of a strong and vibrant community." -- Richard Daley, CEO of Pentaho

"I spent the better part of a year and a half becoming quite the Microsoft Performance Point guru. Imagine my surprise when I found out that Microsoft was going to integrate (or dumb down, depends on your viewpoint) the product. I took a look at Pentaho after reading the news and found a really good alternative to Performance Point Server 2007. Pentaho has all the features of a full commercial BI package with great community support. The innovation of the product impressed me as well. I was intrigued with the iPhone plug-in and Google maps integration. It was simple to go from Performance Point to Pentaho and I was comfortable with it in minutes. If you are looking to delve into BI, then Pentaho is an OSS project you need to consider. I owe a very large thanks and commendation to PJ for the tip on this one." -- Excerpt from Reader's Choice for Best OSS Projects By Ron Barrett on Wed, 03/04/09 - 2:21pm
