Pentaho named as a finalist for “Best Commercial Open Source Project” in 2009 Community Choice Awards

Orlando, FL, June 23, 2009 -- Pentaho Corporation, the commercial open source alternative for business intelligence (BI), today announced that it has been named a finalist for the “ Community Choice Awards.” According to, “This category recognizes the best company-managed open source project with commercial intent.” Since its founding in 2004 as the first commercial open source business intelligence company, Pentaho has developed a large, productive community around its open source projects including the Pentaho Reporting project, the Mondrian OLAP project, the Kettle data integration project, the Weka data mining project, and the Pentaho BI platform project. Some community members participate in one key area of interest while others contribute across multiple projects.

Beyond its vibrant open source community, Pentaho has shown significant commercial traction in the multi-billion dollar business intelligence market, recently announcing the world’s largest open source BI deployment at Specsavers, and a proprietary BI replacement at Otto International, the latest in a series of such replacements.

The Pentaho Community team has put together a short video with highlights focused on the evolution of Pentaho and its community, available on YouTube here

“The Pentaho community is a fantastic group of BI professionals with a great depth of knowledge and experience,” said Doug Moran, vice president of Community at Pentaho Corporation. “As you can see from the video, they’re a fun team to work with and they’ve done a lot to help us get to where we are.”
