Orlando, FL – November 4, 2009 –Pentaho Corporation, the commercial open source alternative for business intelligence (BI), today announced the availability of Pentaho Analyzer and unveiled the company’s “Agile BI” initiative, producing the first completely integrated design environment for data integration, data modeling, and information visualization. Agile BI enables companies to drive all BI implementation tasks - design, modeling, deployment and management – faster and more easily than ever before. This new ease-of-use BI development capability will further enable widespread adoption of Pentaho amongst the technical personnel responsible for building BI applications.
Pentaho Analyzer is the first product delivered to market as part of the Agile BI initiative. Built for the casual user, Analyzer is the new zero-training, interactive reporting interface for the Pentaho Analysis Enterprise Edition product line. Pentaho Analyzer, ready for on-premise and Cloud BI deployment, is available now to all existing and new subscription customers at no additional charge. For more information and to test drive online, go to www.pentaho.com/analyzer.
Pentaho’s Agile BI initiative presents a fast, interactive and iterative approach to building and deploying BI applications. The integrated environment enables fast delivery of self-service reporting by streamlining the data acquisition and modeling tasks necessary for a successful BI solution. Designed to quickly and easily flow from data integration through end user visualization, the new design console empowers both novice and expert BI professionals to rapidly create rich BI applications. Its ease-of-use significantly broadens the potential BI adoption audience while reducing the complexity and cost of the separate tools that were traditionally required to buy, learn and maintain.
“First we made it easy for end users and now we’re making the work of BI and data warehousing developers a whole lot simpler,” said Richard Daley, CEO of Pentaho Corporation. “We’ve simplified and streamlined our BI implementation tasks, making it easier, faster, and cheaper for companies to get key information into the hands of their users.”
Pentaho is demonstrating Analyzer and previewing Agile BI at the TDWI World Conference in Orlando on Wednesday, November 4, 2009.
