Accelerate Big Data Deployment

Pentaho’s drag-and-drop data integration manages Hadoop data sources in the same way as traditional, relational and file-based data sources. Instead of writing Java programs, MapReduce jobs or Pig scripts, Pentaho empowers organizations to leverage existing developer skills to design and develop jobs using visual tools.

Code-Free Data Ingestion, Transformation and Orchestration

  • Leverage existing skillsets and technology investments to exploit the full computational power of Cloudera.    
  • Make elastic use of Hadoop resources by expanding and contracting as data volumes and processing requirements change using Pentaho Data Integration, certified on Cloudera and deeply integrated with YARN.
  • Orchestrate and manage big data jobs without coding using visual tools resulting in better productivity and efficiency.
  • Accelerate migration to Cloudera to realize cost savings in moving from proprietary, expensive traditional database systems.

Ask More Sophisticated Questions
