The company sought to empower end users and enable them to run their own reports and analysis. This would lower IT overhead and dependence on a home-grown solution. Furthermore, Inspirus wanted to implement a low-cost solution that could bring in new data volumes and types.

The Solution: Pentaho Business Analytics, Pentaho Data Integration

Hitachi Vantara’s Pentaho Data Integration software is now used for Inspirus’ ETL processes.

This solution allowed an increase in customer acquisition and improved customer satisfaction, while freeing up resources from manual scripting and data cleansing. The solution can grow with analytics needs and new technology. Additionally, embedded capabilities retain product feel and familiarity.
