Pentaho's Big Data story revolves around Pentaho Data Integration AKA Kettle. Kettle is a powerful Extraction, Transformation and Loading (ETL) engine that uses a metadata-driven approach. The kettle engine provides data services for, and is embedded in, most of the applications within the Pentaho BI suite from Spoon, the Kettle designer, to the Pentaho report Designer. Check out About Kettle and Big Data for more details of the Pentaho Big Data Story.

titleIntro to Pentaho at the April Chicago Big Data Meetup

Thursday, April 19, 2012, 5:30 PM
Dave Reinke of OpenBI will be providing an introduction to Pentaho's new functionality that makes big data programming accessible to traditional BI developers.

He will demonstrate a common data architecture pattern that:

  • Loads data into a big data platform: HDFS & NoSQL
  • Processes data within Hadoop via Pentaho MapReduce, Pig and Hive scripts
  • Extracts data from big data platforms to an RDBMS data mart, and
  • Creates a job that orchestrates the entire process
