More than forty partners from around the globe attended Pentaho Partner Summit 2013 (#PPSUMM13), October 3-4, in the beautiful village of Sintra, Portugal.
Thanks Webdetails/Pentaho for inviting us to the Partner event. It was a great opportunity for IT4biz and Caio Souza (Professor Coruja) to learn more about the EE values, the EE version and how community projects can migrate to EE projects without destroying the Pentaho Community and the Pentaho CE version idea.
The Brazilian public bank CEF (Caixa Econômica Federal) used the CE version of the Pentaho BI Suite for more than 4 years in many BI projects. During some of those years their BI team had some trainings with the IT4biz Team; they created a lot of good stuffs with the CE version and helped the Brazilian Community during all those years, until finally, in 2013, they decided to buy a lot of EE licenses to use in a specific BI project in the Bank. They bought the licenses from OnCase on a “Licitação” – in that period Oncase was the only Partner in Brazil that could resell the EE version.
The CEF (Caixa Econômica Federal) deal helped a lot Oncase (and Brazil) to become the partner of the year in LATAM.
Congratulations to Pentaho Brazilian Community, OnCase, Pentaho, Webdetails, CEF (Caixa Econômica Federal) and everyone that participated, on any way, in this big deal.
We too were happy to participate, in a way, in this great deal.
