Just a little question...
( from a french java developper: sorry for my english :) )

What's the origin of the company name "Pentaho" ?

For example, in french, we can translate another great open source project "Alfresco" as "En Plein Air", and it's sound very well !!!

And Pentaho ???

I thought there was a link with the five BI areas :

Data Integration / ETL
Reporting
Dashboards
Analysis
Data Mining
