As I write this blog I am on my way back home after a day in Paris where we participated in our first industry event in France last week.
Much of the past week has been French flavoured with the announcement of Pentaho in France, including several interviews with journalists, publications writing about and picking up on our announcement and last but certainly not least, the launch of our brand-new website in French. It was about time that we truly had a local presence in France!
To emphasise our intentions, we participated in the Forum Decideo 2010, an annual event held in Paris which brings together BI experts, users, vendors for a series of case study presentations and expert sessions. We attended the event with our new French partner Valuetis, who also sponsored the event. It was a great experience to meet and speak with so many of our French friends.
Speaking of partners, we also held a webinar, Delivering low risk, low cost business intelligence solutions, last week with a new UK partner called Voodoo, who bring years of BI experience to bear and are fully focused on Pentaho. If you missed today's webinar, feel free to view the replay here.
It's really 'La vie en Pentaho' these days and a great way to move through the last month of 2010.
Many of you are probably busy finishing up some activities before the holiday seasons, so I wish you all 'bon courage’.
Cheers, Vinay Joosery VP EMEA Pentaho Corporation
