Pentaho 5.3: Enterprise Cloud Analytics with Amazon Redshift
"We are pleased that customers can combine Amazon Redshift and Pentaho to power fresh business insights with the performance and reliability they have come to depend on in the cloud," said Brian Matsubara, Head of Global Technology Alliances, Amazon Web Services, Inc. "Pentaho’s version 5.3 automates the preparation and modelling of data for Amazon Redshift, helping customers blend and refine large volumes of data for high speed query and analysis."
"At NASDAQ, we’re redefining industry standards for large scale enterprise analytics. We’ve developed a cloud-based big data analytics platform, analyzing billions of stock market transactions everyday using Hadoop, Pentaho and Amazon Redshift," said Michael Weiss, Senior Developer, NASDAQ. "Our legacy systems were extremely slow, and lacked required data governance for data at scale. With today’s big data solution in the cloud, we’re not only able to scale beyond previous capabilities, but do it in a much more cost-effective way with flexible deployment options and higher data confidence."

"Impala enables highly interactive operational business intelligence and data discovery solutions for analysts and business users alike with the fastest time to insight. With an Impala based Pentaho data refinery, our customers can realize the benefits of Hadoop while meeting enterprise requirements."

Providing services that run on Amazon Web Services and Cloudera provides our customers the flexibility and efficiencies for accessing data, as well as the ability to blend trusted and timely data to power enterprise analytics at scale," said Christopher Dziekan, Chief Product Officer, Pentaho.
