Where is Dell heading in the big data, business intelligence and analytics software markets? The answer involves Apache Hadoop and Pentaho — an open source software company that seems to be gaining more business momentum. Here’s the update.
First, a little background on each of the players:
Dell has an Emerging Solutions Ecosystem that drives new innovations out to customers.
Hadoop, the open source infrastructure for Big Data, and the cloud grew yet more intertwined this week at the Hadoop Summit, and so did business intelligence provider Pentaho and Rackspace, the cloud hosting and management company.
Tech giant Dell (NASDAQ: DELL) is sending more than just a beeping stainless steel ball into orbit with Project Sputnik, the company’s six-month exploratory pilot program to create an Ubuntu Linux-based developer notebook computer.
Dell announced Pentaho, an open source business intelligence (BI) and analytics specialist, has joined the Emerging Solutions Ecosystem with its Business Analytics Solu
Open source business intelligence (BI) software vendor Pentaho recently named Doug Johnson as the company's new executive vice president and chief financial officer. With more than 20 years experience in an assortment of technology companies like Black Duck Software and Discreet Logic, Johnson brings strong business and leadership acumen to the table.
The VAR Guy: "Pentaho, the open source business intelligence company, generated record results in 1Q 2010, according to VP of Marketing Joe McGonnell. Pentaho attributes much of its performance to a growing channel partner program."
If Pentaho, the open source business analytics vendor, has its way, the worlds of Big Data, mobile computing and real time information analysis are set to merge. At least, that’s what the latest enhancements to the company’s analytics platform promise.
Big Data often requires “Big Hardware.” In other words, to process and analyze large stores of information, organizations usually need a lot of computing power, which brings with it its own set of demands and maintenance costs.
Big Data analytics based on Hadoop, NoSQL and related technologies may be the very fastest growing segment of the channel at the moment -- not to mention one of the most closely watched, thanks in no small part to disclosures involving the NSA's data analytics practices.
Divining future trends in the rapidly evolving world of Big Data is tough. But a report released by Pentaho offers some interesting clues. Read on for some of the company’s findings regarding Big Data in the enterprise.
Pentaho, of course, is not a neutral party in analyzing Big Data trends.
