CIO — Seeking to make it easier for you to apply analytics to your big data stores, Pentaho today announced the general availability of the latest version of its business analytics and data integration platform.
The Pentaho 5.1 release is intended to bridge the "data-to-analytics divide" for the whole spectrum of Pentaho users, from developers to data scientists to business analysts. Pentaho 5.1 adds the capability to run code-free analytics directly on MongoDB data stores, incorporates a new data science pack that acts as a data science "personal assistant," and adds full support for the Apache Hadoop 2.0 YARN architecture for resource management.
"The new capabilities in Pentaho 5.1 support our ongoing strategy to make the hardest aspects of big data analytics faster, easier and more accessible to all," says Christopher Dziekan, executive vice president and chief product officer at Pentaho. "With the launch of 5.1, Pentaho continues to power big analytics at scale, responding not only to the demands of the big data-driven enterprise but also provides companies big and small a more level playing field so emerging companies without large, specialist development teams can also enter the big data arena."
