  • Dramatically reduced development costs compared to traditional BI tools.

Big Data Platforms supported by Pentaho:

Quotes and Multimedia
"We recognized early on the complexity and diversity of Big Data, and the growing need to support Big Data volumes by organizations of all sizes. As a result, Pentaho now offers deeper and more comprehensive support for Big Data sources than any other BI vendor."
- Richard Daley, Co-Founder and CEO, Pentaho Corporation

"Although we evaluated many BI vendors for our next generation analytics service, what tipped the scale in favor of Pentaho was their support for big data analytics, especially Hadoop. Their offering was far superior to those of other venders in Big Data support and vision. For us, the two biggest selling points for us were support for ETL against Hadoop clusters and the ability to drill down from reports into data stored in Hadoop. Pentaho will dramatically reduce the development time necessary for us to bring our new analytic solution to market.
-Michael Ciancio-Bunch, Vice President, Chief Architect, ExactTarget

"Ideeli needs to analyze our massive web log data sets in the context of the rich data available in our relational transaction systems. Ideeli chose Pentaho for Hadoop because the built-in Hadoop, HBase and Map/ReduceElastic functionality in the Pentaho Data Integration application makes it possible to combine these sources to see the true picture of our business."
-Paul Zanis, Director, Data Services, Ideeli, Inc.

"Hortonworks and Pentaho share a vision whereby Apache Hadoop becomes the de facto platform for storing, managing and analyzing big data. We are focused on accelerating the development and adoption of Apache Hadoop and are excited to be working with Pentaho to further simplify the development and deployment of Big Data projects."
-Eric Baldeschwieler, CEO, Hortonworks.

"Infobright and Pentaho excel at helping companies quickly analyze one of the highest growth areas within Big Data: machine generated data such as Web logs, telecom call records, stock tick data and sensor data. To demonstrate the power of the combined products, the companies have partnered to offer an integrated open source solution that can be downloaded and implemented in minutes"
-Susan Davis, VP Marketing and Product Management, Infobright

"With MongoDB usage growing in the enterprise, there is a clear need for integration with business intelligence tools. The combination of Pentaho and MongoDB will give users the ability to rapidly analyze and extract value from their data stored in MongoDB. We're excited to work with Pentaho to bring the full power of their suite to the MongoDB community."
Max Schireson, President, 10gen the company that develops MongoDB

"As a system integrator, OpenBI uses Hadoop and Pentaho with clients like Exact Target to create analytical insights from previously inaccessible and untrackable data. When working with Pentaho for Hadoop we see a significant increase in productivity versus hand coding, and in many cases execution time and data passes are greatly reduced. The fact that Pentaho natively integrates with multiple data points reduces the complexity of the overall integration and gives us the flexibility to create a 100% custom integration without it being 100% custom."
-Bryan Senseman, Partner and CTO, OpenBI

"The business opportunities emerging from big data analysis are increasing at a rapid pace as companies of all shapes and sizes discover ways to not only improve their business performance, but create new revenue streams from their data. Real-time, user-driven business intelligence is a key component in making big data initiatives true game changers. The combination of VectorWise and Pentaho gives users the speed, flexibility and agility that they require, pushing big data analytics even further into organizations."
- Fred Gallagher, General Manager of VectorWise
