July 25, 2012, — Delivering the future of business analytics, Pentaho Corporation today announced that Pentaho’s Business Analytics 4.5 is certified on Cloudera’s latest releases, Cloudera Enterprise 4.0 and CDH4. The combined Cloudera and Pentaho solution provides a complete end-to-end data management and analytics platform for big data using Hadoop.

Pentaho is also announcing its visual design studio capabilities are extended to the Sqoop and Oozie components of Hadoop. This will, provide point & click visual development interfaces for high performance data import from relational databases into Hadoop using Sqoop, and for workflow and scheduling of Hadoop jobs using Oozie. This builds on Pentaho’s existing visual development studio capabilities for data ingestion, manipulation and integration as well as sophisticated orchestration of tasks across Hadoop and many other data sources and applications.

By optimizing and certifying Pentaho for Cloudera Enterprise 4.0 and CDH4, Pentaho and Cloudera are providing enterprises with a tightly integrated, quality assured environment that significantly accelerates their ability to do data analytics with Hadoop. Working closely together, Cloudera and Pentaho give business customers confidence that the combined solution is of the highest quality and includes world-class support, training, and implementation services for their complete big data analytics solution.

With the certification of Pentaho Business Analytics with Cloudera Enterprise 4.0 and CDH4, Cloudera’s enterprise and open source customers get access to the most advanced Hadoop analytics and data integration capabilities on the market today. In particular, Pentaho Business Analytics and Cloudera deliver the following benefits to IT, developers, business analysts and data scientists:

  1. Complete Hadoop Analytics Platform– visual interfaces for Hadoop data ingestion, data manipulation, data integration, task orchestration, reports, dashboards, visualization, exploration and prediction. Visual development interfaces enable a typically 10-15x boost in productivity.
  2. Complete Support for Cloudera– certified support for Cloudera Enterprise 4.0 and CDH4, as well as support for earlier versions. This includes integrated visual support for the Sqoop and Oozie components of Hadoop for high performance loading and powerful task management.

  5. Connects Hadoop to the Rest of the Enterprise– embraces Hadoop as part of a company’s data fabric instead of as a stand-alone silo, through easy connection to numerous other popular big data stores, traditional data stores and applications. Easy visual coordination of all big data and traditional tasks.
