Pentaho combines data integration functionality with rich reporting, dashboards, data discovery and predictive analytics capabilities to offer a complete end-to-end solution for a range of big data use cases, such as trade analytics, customer behavior analytics, lead conversion analytics and fraud detection. Pentaho’s capabilities such as Dynamic Schemas and In-Hadoop Data Integration provide for rapid development and deployment of big data applications, eliminating the steep technical learning curve and pain points often associated with Hadoop.

Cisco UCS is designed to simplify and accelerate deployment of enterprise-class applications and services running either on premise, virtualized or in cloud-computing environments. When paired with Pentaho Big Data Analytics, it allows businesses to significantly reduce time-to-value and operating expenses associated with big data projects.

The comprehensive solution from Pentaho and Cisco is built using the following components:

  • Cisco UCS 6200 Series Fabric Interconnects
  • Cisco UCS 2200 Series Fabric Extenders
  • Cisco UCS C240 M3 Rack-Mount Servers based on IntelÒ XeonÒ E-2600 series processors
  • Cisco UCS P81E Virtual Interface Card
  • Cisco UCS Manager

Available with the Cisco UCS hardware platform, Pentaho Big Data Analytics provides customers with:

  • Complete business analytics for big data – Pentaho’s end-to-end platform combines data integration and business analytics with capabilities from standard reporting and dashboards to data discovery and predictive analytics.
  • Rapid time to value – Pentaho’s visual interface enables users without Hadoop expertise to easily load and process data from Hadoop quickly and analyze their data in a visual environment.
  • Unified information systems – Pentaho eliminates big data “silos” with its ability to easily design sophisticated workflows that orchestrate events that span big data and traditional data platforms.
  • Reduced costs –  Pentaho empowers organizations to leverage existing skill sets to quickly implement big data solutions that streamlines analytics and data needs into one easy-to-use platform.
  • Broad big data options – Pentaho’s support for all major big data platforms — including Hadoop, NoSQL and the analytical databases — provides maximum flexibility for businesses.
  • World-class support – Should a critical system fail, businesses receive world-class service and support from both Cisco and Pentaho. Pentaho’s comprehensive service and support spans design, installation, configuration and deployment and testing of strategic big data solutions.

“This joint effort makes Pentaho available to the expanding group of Cisco’s customers that is constantly looking for new ways to help streamline and simplify data center operations,” said Eddie White, Executive Vice President of Business Development at Pentaho. “Pentaho gives these enterprises confidence that their developers and analysts can use one integrated solution for business analytics and data integration to get up to speed fast with big data initiatives.”
