I am very excited to share the news the Pentaho is cited as the only ‘Strong Performer’ in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Hadoop Solutions, Q1 2012 (February 2012).
The best way to summarize Pentaho’s position in the market is straight from the report by James G. Kobielus, Senior Analyst, Forrester Research:
“Pentaho is a strong performer with an impressive Hadoop data integration tool. Among data integration vendors that have added Hadoop functionality to their products over the past year, it has the richest functionality and the most extensive integration with open source Apache Hadoop.”
We believe that the inclusion of the Pentaho Kettle data integration product in the first Forrester Wave: Enterprise Hadoop Solutions report is a strong testimonial to Pentaho’s first mover status in this space. The scores awarded to Pentaho are a testimonial to the fact that Pentaho is helping companies operationalize Big Data by addressing critical pain points associated with Hadoop Data Integration and easy analysis of Big Data.
I encourage you to access the full report and see why Pentaho was named a strong performer and how we stack up against other vendors.
