Just over 10 years, and it has finally happened.

Hitachi Data Systems intends to acquire our baby, Pentaho.

I couldn't be more excited. Pentaho is the fast, maneuverable Destroyer coming alongside the Hitachi Battleship, eagerly pursuing dominance of the IoT and Big Data space. I can't think of a better fit for us as a company ready to do big things in a big market, or as a culture of innovators, entrepreneurs and talented, hard-working engineers. So many people have committed themselves to the Pentaho vision for the past decade, people I know like family. Congratulations to my Pentaho family, and Hello Hitachi.

Looking forward to all we will achieve together :)
