Hitachi Data Systems Introduces Pentaho Analytics Software
For the Enterprise in Thailand
Bangkok – Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) today announced the introduction of Pentaho Analytics Software for the Enterprise in Thailand. Hitachi is committed to creating innovative products and solutions that integrate Information Technology (IT), Operational Technology (OT) and advanced analytics to support digital transformation for its customers. In 2015, the company acquired Pentaho, a leading data integration and business analytics company. Over the past year, Hitachi has been integrating the Pentaho platform with a number of its products and solutions to help accelerate insights and business value gained from big data and IoT for its customers.
Pentaho is well known for its Community Edition (Pentaho CE) software, a leading open source platform consisting of ETL, OLAP analysis, metadata, data mining, reports, and dashboards that is well suited to developers. The company now offers Pentaho Enterprise software, which provides expanded and more comprehensive features to support enterprise-scale business analytics deployments, including: job re-start ability, load balancing and data governance, as well as enhanced administrative tools. Additional highlights include data integration, reporting and visualizations, as well as business intelligence and analytics capabilities, with which customers can perform extensive data analysis, and manage large data paths, data lifecycle and security more efficiently.
Pentaho was recently recognized as a Visionary in the 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms.* This demonstrates that Pentaho had an early lead in understanding how emerging trends like big data, IoT, embedded analytics and the convergence of cloud would impact enterprise IT strategies. Pentaho offers native integration with technologies such as Hadoop, Spark, Cassandra and MongoDB, and built-in access to R and Python, as well as the alternative machine learning open source library, Weka. To strengthen its enterprise big data integration platform, Pentaho also offers new capabilities to track data lineage, virtualize blends of diverse data, and support more dynamic and scalable big data onboarding.
“Third Platform computing applications such as big data analytics, cloud, mobility, social technologies and the internet of things (IoT), offer enormous opportunities for enterprises looking to embrace digital transformation, but also present significant challenges. To remain competitive in the digital age, it is critical that enterprises embrace next generation information systems that can support viable digital business strategies and simplify analysis of structured and unstructured data to support better business decision-making, improve operations and processes, enhance customer experiences and innovative new business models,” said Dr. Marrut Manistitya, Managing Director of Thailand and Myanmar at Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) Pte Limited.
Dr. Marrut also noted that Pentaho Enterprise, which represents a new frontier of information utilization for the development of the modern business and big data, is not limited to only primitive databases. Its user interface is easy to use – just drag and drop—and can help to reduce programming and data analysis complexities.
Pentaho software also makes it simple for users to connect to a wide variety of big data sources, including relational databases, analytic databases, SQL or NoSQL, ad hoc files, Hadoop, and diverse unstructured data such as social media feeds, log data and machine data streams from multiple IoT sources, in order to access and use information quickly.
“In Thailand, HDS has a network of partners including Hitachi True North Partners, System Integrators and Big Data alliances. There is high interest from both government and the private sector to make the most of big data. Hitachi’s technology and experience combined with modern software and expertise from Pentaho will enable customers to take advantage of Big Data and Internet of Things with more ease and higher efficiency” Dr. Marrut concluded.
