9 Years Later….

Photo taken the day Pentaho was founded – October 8, 2004

On Oct 8, 2004 five guys got some crazy idea to create a commercial open source BI offering to provide customers of all sizes with a better and more affordable solution than existed from proprietary vendors. Nine years later – “BI” became “BA”,  the core platform just underwent its biggest overhaul since its inception,  our UI/UX is the best ever, the open source community is still key, big data has become our core growth strategy, predictive is awakening, we went thru the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression and are achieving great Y/Y bookings growth. Last, but not least, we have been very fortunate to attract and retain a fantastic, talented, passionate team to make us the leader in big data analytics. Big Data is one of the biggest business impacts our industry has seen in decades and we’re making it happen.

Congrats to the entire company for making this real. Happy Birthday Pentaho.

    9 years?! And the community has been thriving on IRC for at least 7 of those years, those were the days when 4 of us used to sit around in the IRC channel annoying Pedro Alves and some guy called TheHuey who we never saw again. Great to see it evolve into what it is today, PDI and the CTools stack the shining lights that can take this company from in the pack, to leader of the pack :)

    Many happy returns.
