Quick Intelligence Business Brief

Hitachi announces Pentaho 8.2

Hitachi Vantara has announced Pentaho 8.2, the newest release of the company's data integration and analytics platform software.

According to Qi customer Andrew Buffone, director of data management at Carfax Canada: "With Pentaho 8.2 and Hitachi Content Platform, we're able to leverage both structured and unstructured data on a single platform to send cleansed, prepared data to AWS and Microsoft Azure, and will achieve a 20-30% compute cost reduction and a 50%-60% storage cost reduction as a result"

Pentaho 8.2 has some exciting new features:

  •  Integration of Unstructured Data: With Pentaho's new integration with Hitachi Content Platform (HCP), users can now build data pipelines that include structured and unstructured data sources - such as text, video, audio, images, social media, clickstreams and log files.

  • Easier Hybrid Cloud Data Management: Users can now onboard data into Hitachi Content Platform, which functions as a data lake. Then they can use Pentaho to prepare, cleanse and normalize data within HCP.  Pentaho may then be used to make the logical determination of which prepared data is appropriate for each external cloud target. By reducing unnecessary data sent to the cloud, organizations can now better manage costs with Pentaho 8.2.

  • Expanded Analytics Ecosystem Support: Pentaho 8.2 expands support for its growing ecosystem of third-party products and technologies, including support for AMQP messaging protocol, support for customer managed encryption keys (CMEK),  better integration with Python and API calls, and support for open source OpenJDK.
