Press Releases


We entered negotiations with Business Objects, but the pricing limited our options. While fine at the start, in the future every additional user required a large uplift. With Pentaho this is not the case. We ask our clinical staff to enter a lot of assessment data and we want them to see the results of their work. We believe our staff should benefit from BI and Pentaho will make this happen.
