Customers Speak out – Wisdom of the Crowds Business Intelligence Study, 2013

May 21, 2013

Pentaho-wisdom-panel“Responsiveness”, “professionalism”, “knowledge” and “experience”– these are just a few of the words our customers used in giving Pentaho the honor of being recently named a top business intelligence technology vendor in the third annual independent Wisdom of Crowds® Business Intelligence Market Study conducted by Dresner Advisory Services, LLC. The report recognizes Pentaho as a “High Growth BI Software” company with a critical mass of customers growing well above the average.

We have made and continue to make significant investments in simplifying and delivering real value in big data integration and analytics and our customers’ satisfaction. Being named a ‘high growth vendor’ validates that we are experiencing high growth in concert with the big data market, but not at the expense of our customers.

Pentaho earned high marks from its customers on multiple metrics specifically standing out in product, support, consulting and integrity.  This independent research comes straight from the voice of our customers, which is the best possible acknowledgement that we are indeed delivering the future of analytics.
