Pentaho, Cisco Collaborate to Optimize Big Data Analytics

Pentaho Corporation, a business analytics solutions provider, announced that it has joined hands with Cisco (News - Alert) to deliver a big data analytics solution built on the Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) hardware platform.

The new Pentaho big data analytics software will synergize the capabilities of data integration with business analytics and will be offered with Cisco UCS industry-standard, x86-architecture servers. Also networking and storage access will be delivered in a single converged system.

The data integration functionality is further enriched by rich reporting, dashboards, data discovery and predictive analytics capabilities. This results in a wholesome end-to-end solution that will serve the needs of big data users in trade analytics, customer behavior analytics, lead conversion analytics and fraud detection.

Dynamic Schemas and In-Hadoop Data Integration capabilities of Pentaho make rapid development and deployment of big data applications possible besides making it easy to learn, said officials.

Cisco UCS is optimized for deployment of enterprise-class applications and services running on premise, virtualized or in cloud-computing environments. Along with Pentaho Big Data Analytics the Cisco solution will let businesses save a lot of time that is usually spent on big data projects.

Pentaho and Cisco have given a comprehensive solution which includes components such as Cisco UCS 6200 Series Fabric Interconnects, Cisco UCS 2200 Series Fabric Extenders, Cisco UCS C240 M3 Rack-Mount Servers based on Intel (News - Alert) Xeon E-2600 series processors, Cisco UCS P81E Virtual Interface Card and Cisco UCS Manager.

“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, EVP of Business Development at Pentaho.

Adding, “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.”

Pentaho Big Data Analytics solution will be delivered with the Cisco UCS hardware platform and it will offer complete business analytics for big data with data integration and business analytics. It will reduce time spent as it allows data analysis in a visual environment.

The unified information system eliminates big data “silos” which will help design sophisticated workflows covering big data and traditional data platforms. Besides being cost effective, the Pentaho solution supports major big data platforms like Hadoop and NoSQL.
