Due to its simplicity and intuitive nature, the demand to learn Python has continued to grow over the last five years, making it the preferred language for deep learning researchers. How serious is this growth? In 2015, CodeEval determined for the fourth year in a row that Python was the #1 most popular coding language, followed by Java, C++, and Javascript.

It’s been over five years since Pentaho’s CTO, James Dixon coined the now-ubiquitous term data lake . His metaphor contrasted bottled water which is cleansed and packaged for easy consumption with the natural state of the water source – unstructured, uncleansed, and un-adulterated. The data lake represents the entire universe of available data before any transformation has been applied to it. Data isn’t compromised by giving it undue context in order to fit it into existing structures, which could potentially compromise its utility to your business.

We’ve seen more and more Pentaho customers successfully putting all of their data to work – driving revenue growth, operational efficiency, and better customer experiences.

Below, we’ve collected five content pieces that were highly popular with the Pentaho community in 2015. Whether you’re still learning how to spell...

Last year the big data market centered squarely on technology around the Hadoop ecosystem. 2015’s been all about ‘putting big data to work’ through use cases shown to generate ROI from increased revenue and productivity and lower risk. As we move into 2016, big data continues its march beyond the ‘chasm.’ We’ll see more mainstream companies adopting big data and IoT, with traditionally conservative and skeptic organizations starting to take the plunge. With that, here are my predictions for 2016: 1. BIG DATA WILL BE PUT TO WORK and DATA BLENDING will be bigger and more important than we could...

These lyrics from Daft Punk pretty much sum up the past year at Pentaho and tie us nicely into the theme of this year’s PentahoWorld – Big Data at Work! It’s been a busy year and we’ve added substantially to our portfolio of capabilities while working diligently to build out a strong foundation for the future of Big Data orchestration and embedded analytics. As the Director of Product Management, taking a step back to observe the final result of Pentaho 6.0 feels pretty good. We’ve executed on the roadmap we shared last year at PentahoWorld 2014 and added some enhancements...
