From Uruguay to Hong Kong, Pentaho continues to trot the globe at full-speed this month. We will be attending and sponsoring BI and Data Integration conferences in San Francisco, Amsterdam, and Hong Kong. In addition, the Agile BI Tour continues with information-packed free training seminars in Uruguay, Colorado, Texas, and Orlando.
No matter where you are in the world, Pentaho is coming to a computer screen near you with two featured webcasts this month. Learn how business intelligence is changing the face of Big Data with Claudia Imhoff on November 4th. Then on November 10th, find out how Marketo, the industry leading Marketing solution, was able to go to market in a matter of weeks with fully embedded business intelligence.
This month we’re not slowing down for a second. Pentaho is in for a non-stop November, and we hope to see you there!
Agile BI Tour: Data to Dashboards in Minutes
October 25, 2010
It is always good to get out and meet old friends and new, when the sales calendar permits. A great way to combine meeting the public and keeping up Pentaho’s increasing momentum in the EMEA region is attending events. This month has seen seven so far; the launch of our EMEA HQ in Sweden, the Ovum Business Intelligence summit in London, our sponsorship of the Hadoop User Group, also in London, as well as dates for the Pentaho Agile BI Tour, which is ongoing for another few months
First and foremost was the launch of our EMEA HQ in a city which has seen its fair share of Open Source innovation – Stockholm. Held in the famous 100 year old Dramaten theatre and co-hosted by Pentaho partner Omicron, an invited audience of around 50 heard from Lars Nordwall, our Swedish-born Senior Vice-President of Sales (pictured left), as well as partners Conduct and BizIntel. A great success in terms of networking, we will follow up with another event towards the end of the year also at the Dramaten, so feel free to let me know if you can make it. You can see all the photos from this event on the Pentaho Facebook Page.
Next up was the high-end Ovum Business Intelligence Symposium, a CIO-level event, which we co-sponsored with our partner Millersoft and saw us introduce a very impressive presentation from Pentaho customer Air Menzies, whose business involves shipping air freight underneath the passengers on scheduled flights. The audience were spellbound with tales of gold-plated Bugatti Veyronnes being transported from the Gulf to London for a summer with their owners and perhaps even more by an excellent iPad demo of Pentaho from satisfied customer Angus Gow (look out for the impressive case study soon).
Finally in a busy few weeks, Pentaho contributed the beer, pizza and (some of the) brainpower to only the fifth UK Hadoop User Group. Pentaho’s philosophy, which fosters communities like this, proves the importance of the Community aspect of our Open Source commitment. In this communal atmosphere, it was pleasing to hear so many searching questions from a friendly gathering that included some forward-thinking Pentaho customers. If you deal with Big Data but could not make it along, the chances are our paths will cross soon.
