"Pentaho is one of the few vendors that provide a direct integration into Hadoop and NoSQL databases, allowing users to analyse and visualize NoSQL data alongside traditional data sources" Forrester recognized Pentaho as the sole "Strong Performer“. "Pentaho provides an impressive Hadoop data integration tool." Pentaho was cited for its rich functionality and extensive integration with Apache Hadoop, and for providing certified integration with distributions from Cloudera, EMC Greenplum and Hortonworks. Passionned's Business Intelligence Tools Survey highlighted the completeness of the Pentaho product suite compared to other vendors, as well as Pentaho's significant cost-saving by pricing products per deployment, not per-user. Pentaho earned recommendation as a complete enterprise solution. Pentaho was included in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence Platforms. The report, published, offers the analyst firm's insights on business intelligence vendors who meet an inclusion threshold based on annual sales, capabilities, and customer survey responses.

  12. 12. Pentaho ETL
  13. 13. Pentaho Kettle ETL •Pentaho Data Integration (PDI, also called Kettle) is the component of Pentaho responsible for the Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) processes. Though ETL tools are most frequently used in data warehouses environments, PDI can also be used for other purposes: •Migrating data between applications or databases •Exporting data from databases to flat files •Loading data massively into databases •Data cleansing •Integrating applications

  15. 15. Pentaho Kettle ETL Spoon • GUI that allows you to design transformations and jobs •Transformations and Jobs can describe themselves using an XML file or can be put in a Kettle database repository. •Spoon is available as executable script and batch file to make use of tool in heterogeneous environment. Pan •A program to execute transformations designed by Spoon in XML or database repository. •Transformations are scheduled in batch mode to be run automatically at regular intervals Carte •Simple web server to execute transformations and jobs remotely. •Accept an XML that contains transformation to execute and the execution configuration. •Allows to remotely monitor, start and stop the transformations and jobs

  24. 24. What makes Pentaho different for big data Ingestion / Manipulation / Integration Scheduling Modeling Would you rather do this? … OR THIS?
  25. 25. Pentaho Big Data Integration Pentaho is integrated with Hadoop at many levels •Traditional ETL - Graphical designer to visually build transformations that read and write data in Hadoop from/to anywhere and transform the data on the way. No coding required •HBase Read/Write •Hive, Hive2 SQL Query and Write •Impala SQL Query and Write •Support for Avro file format and snappy compression •Data Orchestration - Graphical designer to visually build and schedule jobs that orchestrate processing, data movement and most aspects of operationalizing your data preparation. •HDFS Copy files •Map Reduce Job Execution •Pig Script Execution •Amazon EMR Job Execution •Oozie integration •Sqoop Import/Export •Pentaho MapReduce Execution
  26. 26. Pentaho Big Data Integration •Pentaho MapReduce - Graphical designer to visually build MapReduce jobs and run them in cluster. With a simple, point-and-click alternative to writing Hadoop MapReduce programs in Java or Pig, Pentaho exposes a familiar ETL-style user interface. •Traditional Reporting - All data sources supported above can be used directly or blended with other data to drive our pixel perfect reporting engine. The reports can be secured, parameterized and published to the web. The reports can be mashed up with other pentaho visualizations to create dashboards. •Web Based Interactive Reporting - Pentaho's Metadata layer leverages data stored in Hive, Hive2 and Impala for WYSIWYG, interactive, self-service reporting. •Pentaho Analyzer - Leverage your data stored Impala or Hive2 for interactive visual analysis with drill through, lasso filtering, zooming, and attribute highlighting for greater insight.
