Pentaho Teams with Partners Worldwide on Fast Track BI Seminar Series

March 16, 2011

Global seminars teach companies how to get started with Agile BI to transform data into decisions

March 16, 2011, — Pentaho Corporation, the pioneer in agile business intelligence (BI), today announced it is bringing Agile BI to the masses through free seminars spanning six continents and more than 40 cities to help companies discover how to fast track their Business Intelligence projects.  

With the Fast Track BI seminar series, Pentaho is going directly to its customers and prospects around the globe, instead of hosting a single conference requiring significant travel time and expense.  Produced with Pentaho partners who are experts in their markets, the free events are open to companies interested in making better, faster and more cost-effective decisions using commercial open source BI.

"We expect to reach thousands of new users with this massive series of events," said Ian Fyfe, Chief Technology Evangelist of Pentaho. "IT professionals interested in delivering BI solutions more quickly and easily than ever before will benefit from the hands-on demos from Pentaho and our partners that show Agile BI in action using real data sets and starting from data integration. We're excited to collaborate with our partners to tap into their local markets and communities of BI users, who are eager to drive business value through an Agile BI methodology."

The series kicks off in March with events in Buenos Aires, Argentina on March 22; Copenhagen, Denmark and Mardrid, Spain on March 25; Oslo, Norway on March 29; and Singapore on April 4 with more events being added daily at:  Pentaho is hosting these events with partners Vinkos, Matrix CPM, Conduct, Microgenesis, Linalis, GrayMatter, Raqmiyat, KSK, and Praxis.  North American partner sponsors include Management Signals, Project Leadership Associates, and Athena IT Solutions, which will be hosting U.S. events later this spring.
