Resources

We needed an enterprise-level BI solution that allows us to see in detail whether a sales channel is performing or not, but our experience told us there was no advantage in traditional BI. We like open source and Pentaho was the only BI solution of this kind which we felt comfortable could deliver enterprise-level reports to the standards we require.

Per Einar Dybvik CEO, WiMP Music
