At Pentaho we believe that no two OEMs are the same and they should not be serviced or supported as a typical support customer. To address this fact we established the Pentaho OEM Development Services Group so that we can enable everyone from emerging vendors to multi-billion dollar companies to experience rapid time-to-value as they deploy Pentaho BI technology to bring innovative, differentiated and low-cost applications to market.

Session 1: Architecture of the BI Server
Our OEM customers have chosen to embed Pentaho BI to bring innovative, differentiated and low-cost applications to market. Read their stories below. The new OEM Development Services Group will focus solely on the needs of these partners who are faced with unprecedented demand and sophisticated functionality requirements.
Marketo’s new web-based revenue performance management solutions embed functionality for slicing and dicing data and creating ad hoc reports and dashboards. Thanks to Pentaho’s services, Marketo brought its new product to market in just eight weeks; building it themselves would have taken three months with four full-time engineers. George Jaquette, SVP of Engineering at Marketo, explains,“We were looking to partner with a cloud-deployable, flexible BI technology provider. Pentaho helped us meet our goal of rapid time-to-market by delivering a feature-rich product in just eight weeks.”
IQNavigator, Inc., the leading SaaS provider of services procurement and extended workforce solutions, needed a solution showcasing their client-facing Business Intelligence capabilities with specific focus on information visualizations, on-demand dashboards and mobile access for their client base of global procurement executives managing billions of dollars of services spend. IQNavigator, winner of the 2011 Global Partner Award for Most Innovative Embedded Product, integrated Pentaho Analyzer in their SaaS platform and branded the robust features as Data Xplorer and Visual Xplorer, key elements of their Business Intelligence suite, IQNtelligence. Eric Cohen, Vice President, Business Intelligence at IQNavigator explains, “Our clients are responsible for understanding their large, global contingent workforce programs and depend on having the right information available, at the right time and in the right format to drive critical business decisions. Leveraging key technologies provided by Pentaho allows our clients simple and effective access to mountains of rich data supporting important hiring and sourcing strategies. When we showcased our Data Xplorer and Visual Xplorer reporting suites to our clients, they were very engaged and the demonstrations on the iPad left them ‘wowed’.”
CIPAL in Belgium, which serves the public sector, is particularly attracted to open source BI software for its flexibility, customizability and pricing model. According to Sven Meermans, Business Development Manager, CIPAL, “Pentaho BI’s affordable, open source technology was the best choice for our new white label Athena BI application, which runs on CIPAL’s delivery platform based on open standards, open infrastructure, and open communications. The benefits that the open source community provides, including its knowledge base and plug-ins combined with professional support Pentaho offers with its enterprise edition, enabled us to roll out our Athena BI pilot to four social welfare organizations in just four months.”
