Press for GoodData

Black Duck Software, a global provider of products and services for accelerating software development through the managed use of open source software, has selected GoodData as its on demand business intelligence service. Black Duck takes advantage of GoodData's Safe Harbor Program for former LucidEra customers, which offers the same lead & pipeline analysis application for Salesforce.com that customers enjoyed with LucidEra before the company ceased operations.

GoodData today announced that it has closed its seed funding round, adding an additional $2.5 million in new capital. The company added Andreessen Horowitz to its list of venture investors, joining General Catalyst Partners and O'Reilly AlphaTech Ventures. The financing further validates GoodData's approach of building a robust cloud BI platform, and will support the commercial launch of GoodData after a successful public beta program which drew over 2,000 customers.
