For the shortest month of the year, Pentaho made a lot of noise in the press. Not as much as Charlie Sheen, Egypt and Libya, but we had our fare share as you can see below in our February in review update.
New customer references
This month we were happy to add Brussels Airport to our list of customer successes. Following a competitive proof-of-concept project to replace both its Oracle reporting and an IBM Extraction Transformation and Load tool, Brussels Airport selected Pentaho for its reporting and ETL capabilities to achieve their goal of a single Information Delivery Platform. You can read their story in English, French and Dutch.
“Choosing Pentaho meant we could replace not just our reporting, but also our proprietary ETL tool to achieve our goal of a single Information Delivery Platform. Given we found Pentaho gives us at least 80 to 85% of the functionality of proprietary vendors, the cost savings we achieved are hugely significant at an estimated €350K+.”
