    Default Future of Pentaho

    Hi,

    I heard rumors that Pentaho is firing over 20% if their developers. Is that true? Is there any official statement maybe?

    3 developers as far as I know of were laid off. Sorry if there were 4, I didn't know all of them very well.

    As far as the future is concerned, it's so bright we gotta wear shades.

    Shades? Not a pretty sight. Shame to hear about the devs though.

    pmalvas, that number does great injustice to the large amount of contributors, you included.

    PDI alone has over 25 committers. Sure, not all on the Pentaho payroll, but it does show you the difference between layoffs in a proprietary company and a commercial open source company.

    Take care,
    Matt

    Thanks for your answers. I know OS software usually has a lot of committers but I see other OS BI companies growing really fast while Pentaho is slowing down. But maybe everyone is so happy with Version 2* that you don't have to work as fast on more and better features.

    Well Benjamin flamebait,

    Please pray do enlighten us, what OS BI companies are growing "so fast"?
    Additionally, feel free to let us know which among that group recently needed to get extra funding.

    Maybe our friend here hasn't noticed the economic down turn?

    Judging by his website I would guess Palo as his thesis is Pentaho vs Palo. Don't see it myself though..
