The month of November was very exciting as we announced a new product suite along with General Availability of three products. We add five new customer success stories including one industry award for customer success and three customer webcast. To top it off, we surpassed 150,000 installations of Pentaho year-to-date – you can learn more about this analysis (using Pentaho BI) on our blog. Read on for a quick recap of our busy November.
In November, Pentaho announced the availability of the Pentaho Enterprise Data Services Suite.
