November 19, 2010, Stockholm, Sweden —

Pentaho Corporation open source Business Intelligence (BI) and Data Integration leader, today announced that BizIntel AB has selected Pentaho Open Source Business Intelligence to power its groundbreaking new SaaS offering.

BizIntel is a reseller and supplier of complete Data Warehouse (DW) and Business Intelligence solutions based in Stockholm, Sweden. With over 20 years experience in this domain and having developed some of Scandinavia's most sophisticated DW and BI solutions, BizIntel has recently launched a brand-new SaaS offering called BISS (BizIntel Solution Services) which allows customers to access 'Business Intelligence-on-tap'.

After evaluating a number of different BI vendors, both open source and proprietary, such as Jaspersoft and Actuate, BizIntel chose the Pentaho BI Suite for its breadth of functionality, maturity and low-cost pricing model. The team looked for limitations in Pentaho's technology and established that its capabilities in terms of supporting large amounts of data from multiple data sources were unmatched by the competition.

Following intensive testing, they were fully confident that Pentaho could handle massive volumes of data and scale well, making it a great match for Bizintel's business plan. Today, BizIntel uses several components of the Pentaho BI Suite such as Pentaho Reporting, Pentaho Analysis and Pentaho Dashboards.

Mats Tärning, CEO, BizIntel AB explains, "Pentaho has proved very easy to do business with and has helped us transform our product-offering and services-offering, In today's trying times where business needs to be done fast and cost-efficiently, we have found great value and satisfaction with working with Pentaho."
