Westfield Brings Systems Together With Pentaho

Case Study

Challenge: Westfield is an Australian-based British-American shopping center company with U.K. and U.S. retail destinations.

Solution: Use Pentaho Data Integration to integrate data across different departments and business domains.


  • Provides significant savings compared to the alternative.
  • Promotes IT independence and lower technical obstacles.
  • Enables faster go-to-market with new capabilities.

Onboard new extract, transform and load (ETL) processes easily and at low cost, and create a scalable data environment that grows with the business.

The Challenge: Deploy and Monitor New ETL Processes in a Scalable Environment

With one of the world's largest shopping center portfolios, Westfield needed to gain faster access to data so it could rapidly identify and take advantage of new opportunities.

To accomplish this, they wanted to onboard new extract, transform and load (ETL) processes easily and cost-effectively. They also wanted to deploy the solution using standard design patterns so that system operators could monitor, maintain and troubleshoot deployed processes. Perhaps most important, they needed a scalable data environment that can grow with the company and its evolving needs.
