Knosys opened Knosys France in Paris. The expansion marks Knosys’ continued growth in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa since opening offices in Sweden, the United Kingdom, and Italy over the past 5 months. “\[Because France is\] one of the largest European markets, it was necessary to open the French office to better serve our local partners and customers,” says Johan Pellicaan, Knosys Europe managing director. The new office will help Knosys enhance sales and support of its analytical application development platform and prepackaged OLAP clients. In addition to the existing English version, the Knosys platform will be available in French and German in April. Knosys appointed François Koukerdjinian, former IRI Software senior vice president for South European operations, as Knosys France director.
