Pentaho Partners 'Rise Above' at Pentaho Global Partner Summit 2011

The Premier Event for Driving Revenue With Open Source Business Intelligence

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - December 16, 2010) -  Pentaho Corporation, the open source business intelligence (BI) and data integration leader, today announced the keynote speakers, agenda highlights and Partner Award categories for the Pentaho Global Partner Summit happening in San Francisco, California on January 19-20, 2011.

2010 has seen unprecedented growth for Pentaho. From being the first BI vendor to announce support for Hadoop, to the introduction of the world's first unified ETL, modeling and visualization development environment, Pentaho has broken away from the pack of independent BI vendors. As a reflection of the company's continued momentum in the space, the theme of this year's Global Partner Summit is "Rising Above."

The Pentaho Global Partner Summit will provide attendees with tools needed to take advantage of Pentaho's forward-thinking innovation, cutting-edge technology and rapid development, to help companies take their business intelligence practice to the next level.
