Two weeks ago we launched Pentaho Business Analytics 5.1. The new capabilities in Pentaho 5.1 support our ongoing strategy to make the hardest aspects of big data analytics faster, easier and more accessible to all. In honor of our Chief Architect, Will Gorman (also a LEGO Master Builder), we decided to have some fun with LEGO and now present to you the LEGO explanation of new features and functionality in Pentaho 5.1:
Direct Analytics on MongoDB – Unleash the value of MongoDB analytics for IT and Business Analysts with no coding required.
Data Science Pack – Operationalize predictive models for R and Weka, drastically reducing data preparation time and effort.
Full YARN Support – Reduce complexity for big data developers while leveraging the full power of Hadoop

More than forty partners from around the globe attended Pentaho Partner Summit 2013 (#PPSUMM13), October 3-4 in the beautiful village of Sintra, Portugal, famous for its 19th-century Romantic architecture and landscapes. The following video summarizes the two days in under two minutes:
To further help partners to maximize and monetize big data opportunities, the Summit included sales and technical training sessions focusing on different aspects of the big data ecosystem. During these sessions Steve Jenkins, Vice President EMEA of Hadoop distributor MapR, and Luca Olivari, Director of Business Development EMEA of MongoDB, the NoSQL database, explained how Pentaho supports these important and popular big data technologies.
Partner of the Year Award
The Pentaho partners that were the most successful over the last year, delivering outstanding customer success, technical innovation and commercial results, were honored at a gala dinner with the Pentaho Partner of the Year Award. This year’s winners were Italy’s BNova (EMEA), Brazil’s OnCase Brazil (LATAM) and Japan’s KSK (APAC).
New partner program
The Pentaho Partner Summit 2013 was the perfect occasion to share more details on our new enhanced Partner Program in EMEA, Asia Pacific and Latin America. The new program consists of three levels: Registered Member, Certified Partner and Premium Partner. Registered Member is a new entry level that makes it easier for new partners to sign up to the partner program. The main partnership level, now called ‘Certified Partner’ has been simplified. To reward commitment, Certified Partners that offer advanced services and sell successfully are eligible to earn the top ‘Premium’ status. These new levels replace the previous Bronze, Gold and Platinum and make it easier for customers to select the right partner for their needs.
