StoneGate Senior Living experiences 2800% ROI with Pentaho

June 18, 2012

In health and senior care, where the top priority is patient well-being, every penny of IT investment has to count.  Therefore, we are excited to announce that our customer, StoneGate Senior Living, has been named a Nucleus Research 2012 Technology ROI award winner.  Nucleus Research granted StoneGate this prestigious award for its integration of social collaboration, mobile access and analytics resulting in a 2800% return on investment!

Nucleus Research’s Technology ROI Award is granted to the top ten organizations each year that have maximized the value per dollar of their IT deployments.  Considering that this year’s award winners have achieved the highest cumulative ROI to date, we are especially proud to celebrate StoneGate’s success.

StoneGate Senior Living, which provides a range of support services to senior living and care properties, had been struggling to track and manage its overtime pay and expenses.  To resolve this, StoneGate established the Pentaho Business Analytics platform as the foundation for a new expense management system.

By aligning IT strategy and business goals using Pentaho Business Analytics, StoneGate has automated expense data collection and analysis across all 30 StoneGate facilities, resulting in an average annual benefit totalling $2,088,677.  StoneGate has achieved many other benefits including reducing overtime costs, accelerating accounts payable and automating other processes. The estimated payback occurred only two weeks into the Pentaho deployment.

Now that Pentaho Business Analytics has been successfully integrated, the sky’s the limit for StoneGate.  We are delighted to have been able to help StoneGate achieve its business goals and we extend our warmest congratulations to their team on this outstanding achievement!

Pentaho and MongoDB

May 23, 2012

I’m at the MongoNYC conference in New York today, where Pentaho is a sponsor. 10gen have done a great job with this event, and they have 1,000 attendees at the event.

We just announced a strategic partnership between 10gen and Pentaho. From a technical perspective the integration between MongoDB and Pentaho means:

  • No Big Silos. Data silos are bad. Big ones are no better. Our MongoDB ETL connectors for reading and writing data mean you can integrate your MongoDB data store with the rest of your data architecture (relational databases, hosted applications, custom applications, etc).
  • Live reporting. We can provide desktop and web-based reports directly on MongoDB data
  • Staging. We can provide trending and historical analysis by staging snapshots of MongoDB aggregations in a column store.

I’m looking forward to working with 10gen to integrate some of their new aggregation capabilities into Pentaho.
