The Solution: Pentaho Business Analytics, Pentaho Data Integration
ProCapital decided to use Hitachi Vantara's Data Management and Analytics platform, Pentaho. This solution offered them standardized ETL tasks through a single platform. It replaced heterogeneous tools for extraction and processing of data, or raw flows from the customer back offices. The software provides diverse data sources available for customers in a consolidated data mart. ProCapital enlisted the help of Linalis, a Hitachi Vantara partner company specializing in BI, that provided guidance on architecture conception, accelerated deployment, and maximized exploitation of the platform.
They picked this solution as it provided them with a comprehensive and integrated solution, all the way from data extraction to analysis. The solution’s rapid start, simplified and interactive user interface, and advanced functionality for visualization and analysis were contributing factors in Hitachi Vantara’s Pentaho solution being picked. Pentaho’s native open-source components were seen as beneficial to ProCapital as they allowed for advanced functionality for visualization and analysis. Moreover, Pentaho was picked because it’s a ready-to use platform that could handle big data in the future, if needed. The company was interested in a platform that could blend historical data with daily “live” data for diverse analysis. They were interested in client patterns, operated data traceability, legal purposes, and IT infrastructure health (servers, routers).
ProCapital has seen increased productivity and quality in terms of maintenance and traceability, thanks to Pentaho Data Integration (PDI) and its universal processing. This gives everyone the same logic and provides more consistency. Thanks to Pentaho’s APIs, business analytics are available through a single ProCapital platform. Lastly, the creation of new business analytics services has provided the firm with a differentiating competitive advantage.
