Pentaho – the globe’s leading BI and Big Data Solution Provider needs no introduction when it comes to the Big Data Solutions that it encompasses in its product stack. Time and again, Pentaho has kept adding refined and novel technologies in it kitty, attracting widespread clientele including Fortune 1000 companies and increasing its reach from mid size segment to large conglomerates. A major ability of Pentaho is its capability to handle large sized data integration from disparate sources like enterprise data warehouses, Hadoop and NoSQL etc. Yet another highlight that Pentaho focuses on, in its Big Data Solutions, is its big data blueprints, in which the entire limelight is on generic use cases for ETL offloading, customer analytics which go off well with high performance databases like MongoDB and Cassandra.
Now, with BI and Big Data going great guns, the expectations of end users from the solutions are increasing day by day. Now simple online reporting isn’t what they want, they need to understand visual analytics easily and get their favourite query fetch data in seconds. This surely puts a pressure on the IT department to fulfil the business analyst’s demands.
To get a solution to this, one of the most recent advancements from Pentaho is its concept called ‘Streamlined Data Refinery’ – largely for the business analysts to choose their combinations from the menus available and get the desired result in no time. No longer do the end users have to mull around the data structures or the meta data to get a grip of the software. As documented by Pentaho, you can blend, enrich and refine any data source into secure, analytic datasets, on demand with a Streamlined Data Refinery. With the usage of Hadoop as a Big Data central component in Big Data Solutions, PDI would process and refine the data sets. Data sets are then repeatedly modelled, published and delivered to clients for instant ocular analytics.
This robust, flexible and dynamic ‘Streamlined Data Refinery’ offers automatic generation of a data cube to enable swift query execution from an analytic database, in any Big Data Solution. Pentaho promises to add on multiple databases to its basket to support this novel approach. Recently, Chuck Yarbrough, director – big data product marketing at Pentaho, in a recent webcast, said that “We view this as governed data delivery. It’s about blending, enriching vast, diverse data sets you have, providing a mechanism to orchestrate and apply governance to all of that data, and to deliver that data set in a way that it can easily be consumed by the user.”
