NEWS SUMMARY

-- Pentaho Corporation, the commercial open source alternative for business intelligence (BI), today announced that it has been named a finalist for the "SourceForge.net Community Choice Awards." According to SourceForge.net, "This category recognizes the best company-managed open source project with commercial intent."
