bayon is back

For readers who have been perusing since the early days of this blog (bayon blog) you’ll know what I’m talking about. If you’re a reader that has joined in the past year and half you’re probably wondering “What is bayon?”

bayon is a boutique consulting firm specializing in Business Intelligence implementations; it’s my company that I’ve operated since 2002. I put it on the back burner when I put on a Pentaho jersey and played a few games on the Pentaho team. I’m leaving (actually, left) Pentaho. My time at Pentaho was great. The Pentaho tribe is a great group of kind, honest, smart people. Rare to find the intersection of good people and good technologists.

I’ve felt the siren call of helping customers in a more entrenched way. Consulting does that I think. So, not like it’s a big announcement, but it is belated as my last day at Pentaho was nearly two months ago:

I’m now working at bayon full time building a dedicated practice around Open Source BI technologies in the enterprise. Bayon has joined the Pentaho partner program as a Certified Systems Integrator.

So there you have it. Shingle is out.

If you are interested in Pentaho, Open Source ETL, Open Source BI, etc don’t hesitate to be in touch.

PS – It’s also worth noting that my leaving has no reflection on the progress of the business. Quite the opposite really; some would consider me foolish for leaving when the company is doing as well as it is!

    Hi Nick,

    When you left I had great hopes that you would finally find the time to help me with the analyses step in PDI. However… as a Pentaho partner you seem to be even more busy as before.

    Ah well, someone came to the conclusion a long time ago that “freedom” is just another word for nothing left to lose. We are just doomed to come to the same conclusion time and time again. We might as well enjoy our time in the rat race 😉

    Again, congratulations on the carreer move!

    All the best,

    Good to see the bayon brand back in action, open source ETL/BI is as much about the practitioners as the technology; open minds using open source. All the best in the future.

    Some adjustments are needed. The blog says you’re no longer with Pentaho but the “ABOUT ME” box says Pentaho. No contact info is apparent outside the one Bayon blog entry so it will get buried. And the spam in the banner ads and inside comments (search for http) could use some cleanup.
