Hitachi Data Systems has completed its acquisition of Pentaho, which specializes on data integration, visualization and analytics.
Pentaho will retain its existing brand and continue to operate independently as "Pentaho, a Hitachi Data Systems company" under the leadership of its CEO Quentin Gallivan, who will now report to Kevin Eggleston, SVP of social innovation at HDS.
The Pentaho platform will continue to be offered independently and has been integrated by HDS into its advanced analytics foundation software, where it will enhance the company’s existing big data analytics and processing technologies and extend the capabilities of its broader information management product and services portfolio.
Through its integration with the Pentaho platform, HDS is now extending its data integration, refinement, monitoring, management, and orchestration capabilities to deliver an incomparably sophisticated data analytics stack.
This stack is described as powering its Social Innovation solutions and delivering on the full promise of the "Internet of Things that matter," by helping businesses to derive rich insights from their data with faster time to value, and supporting the development of smarter, safer, healthier and more efficient societies.
Through its strategic acquisitions of oXya, Pantascene and Pentaho, HDS is accelerating its Social Innovation vision and IoT product roadmap.
HDS and Pentaho also recently delivered a new Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) solution for SAP HANA that enables developers to process and refine big data from any source, at scale.
