I.T. Co. and Pentaho have concluded an agreement on strategic partnership in building and promotion of Corporate Business Intelligence Systems (BI) based on Pentaho Business Intelligence in Russia. I.T. Co. has become the first Russian company to have met all the requirements for obtaining the Pentaho Gold Reseller status and is now able to provide solid support for Pentaho users and extend the system application areas.
The strategic partnership between I.T. Co. and Pentaho is a step attributable, on the one hand, to high demand for BI-systems and commitment of many Russian companies to solve challenges related to large amounts of information accumulated in different accounting systems. On the other hand, it is caused by the interest of Russian companies in Open Source solutions which allow saving licensing costs and paying for software configuration and maintenance only.
The Gold Partner status assumes that I.T. Co. specialists have sufficient expertise to conduct competent development and implementation of Pentaho BI, Enterprise Edition as well as qualification required to organize comprehensive technical support of this solution.
Globally recognized in the Business Intelligence market, Pentaho BI includes all the components which are inherent to a modern corporate data analysis system. They include advanced tools for analytical reports preparation and generation, data loading (ETL), dashboard creation, data mining, and OLAP cube creation. Furthermore, a single working place for reports preparation and analysis including mobile access can be built based on this platform. Pentaho BI is especially useful for organizations with heterogeneous information systems which are interested in the unification of reporting and data analysis technologies.
The platform is based on a robust and high-performance architecture providing efficient processing, control and delivery of mission-critical information as well as capabilities for analysis of this information by different user groups. Important advantages of the software architecture include cross platform, scalability, and integration with third-party products.
«In Russia, there are already examples of the implementation of Pentaho BI, but no one of the IT home market players has undertaken the responsibility to support the Pentaho platform itself so far. When it comes to the creation of a corporate business-critical solution, you can’t do without warranties from a well trusted supplier. Our partnership with Pentaho will change the situation. We can offer high-quality support of the localized version of Pentaho BI Enterprise Edition in the Russian market», – says Michael Makedonsky, Head of the Custom Software Development Center, I.T. Co. «Pentaho is a competitive alternative to the proprietary BI-solutions; in some cases it is a preferable option as to quality-price ratio».
«As a Gold Partner, I.T. Co. has proved to have the knowledge, skills, and commitment to advise organizations implementing Pentaho business intelligence», said Davy Nys, Vice President, EMEA & APAC, Pentaho. «We look forward to a long-term strategic partnership with I.T. Co. and working with them to provide superior Pentaho BI support, training and consulting in Russia».
