Sandro Frattura, Senior DBA from Online Buddies of Cambridge (operating in the social networking & dating space), will be our featured guest discussing Pentaho. Pentaho is the leading open source Business Intelligence Platform on the market today.

Sandro will:

· Demonstrate how easy it is to use Pentaho to aggregate and transform data (ETL) from disparate data sources into a single destination using Pentaho’s “Data Integration” platform(Spoon/Kettle etc.)

· Show how to create a dynamic “cube” (using Pentaho’s Schema Workbench) based on a simple star schema.

· ShowPentaho’s “User Console” helps to visualize data cubes.

This presentation will be less conceptual about the esoteric concepts of data warehousing, and more practical about how to use the Pentaho platform to transform data and provide dynamic user-driven data analysis which is so critical to information-heavy businesses today.
