July 7, 2015, — Delivering the future of analytics, Pentaho, a Hitachi Data Systems company, today announced a global OEM agreement with CSC (NYSE: CSC).

"Pentaho as part of the CSC BD PaaS offering, with both commercial and technical integration, expands the CSC Big Data offering to our enterprise customers," said Eddie Satterly, Chief Technology Officer, Emerging Business Group, CSC.
