Luc Vaillancourt, co-founder and CEO of the new company Spatialytics Solutions inc. (Spatialytics), did a presentation of Spatialytics.org Geo-BI Open Source projects at LIC 2009 (Location Intelligence Conference) last week at Westminster, CO. Mr. Vaillancourt had to replace Dr. Thierry Badard who originally was representing his research team GeoSOA of Laval University.
This presentation was the first public appearance for the new company. The message was all about the three Open Source Projects (GeoKettle and GeoMondrian) hosted at Spatialytics.org who originated at Laval University and their role in the Business Intelligence Open Source stack from Pentaho.
September 29th 2009, Dr. Thierry Badard gave a presentation at the autumn Conference of the AGMQ (Association de géomatique municipale du Québec) whose main theme was “Geomatics: Essential tools for public safety“.
The title was “Putting the techniques and tools of Open Source Geospatial BI at the service of public safety”. It, amongst other things, presented the Geo-BI Open Source projects developed at Laval university, GeoKettle and GeoMondrian.
The Open Source Business Resource (OSBR.ca) online journal publishes this month an interesting special issue on Business Intelligence (BI). It includes a paper from the GeoSOA research group entitled “Enabling geospatial Business Intelligence” which provides details on what is geospatial BI and about the open source GeoBI software stack (GeoKettle and GeoMondrian) developed by the group.
