An Introduction to Pentaho’s Big Data Technology

Recently, a series of product announcements has moved Pentaho to the center of the Big Datamarketplace. Over the past few months, Pentaho has:

  • Switched to the Apache license while open-sourcing a broad swath of commercial and Big Data functionality of its flagship ETL software, Pentaho Data Integration (PDI).
  • Developed strategic alliances with Big Data vendors such as MapR, Cloudera, DataStax, Actian,Greenplum/EMC, Vertica and Infobright
  • And has been Acknowledged as a Strong Performer in the Forrester Wave for Enterprise HadoopSolutions

Pentaho Big Data technology makes big data programming accessible to traditional BI developers,providing an integrated data architecture that spans a continuum from big data platform to datawarehouse to data mart -- while also enabling reporting and analysis against Hadoop, NoSQL and highperformance analytical databases.
This session serves to educate on the Pentaho Big Data functionality. We will demonstrate a commondata architecture pattern that:

  • Loads data into a big data platform: HDFS & NoSQL
  • Processes data within Hadoop via Pentaho MapReduce, Pig and Hive scripts
  • Extracts data from big data platforms to an RDBMS data mart, and
  • Creates a job that orchestrates the entire process

    Good intro to Pentaho, and a sample dataset that is easy to understand in terms of content and value of extracted information.

    Dave Reinke was a great presenter. Not only he demoed Pentaho but he aslo showed us the same process workings through other platforms such as Pig, Hbase, Mongodb etc. He packed a lot in one hour presentation and it was good.

    Great explanation on what Pentaho is bringing to the Hadoop party, and how you can use a tool that is also used for traditional data movement to help accelerate your Big Data adoption.
