Before making an investment in a new car you may first narrow down what features you want such as fast, easy to use and cost effective. Next, once you have a strategy you probably head to a dealer to test drive a few of the targeted options before making a big investment in a car that you know will improve your commute.
With the rapidly changing data landscape, there are newer, faster, and easier to use options to access, analyze and predict your data that are now in the marketplace. Similar to the flashy car advertisements, its hard to separate hype from reality of which tools will give your organization the performance and flexibility needed to achieve a return on your investment.
Similar to the process you would take to buy a new car, at PentahoWorld, we are giving you a unique opportunity to test drive three different innovative use cases that we see making s huge impact on our customers. This includes Pentaho Data Integration (PDI) with Hadoop, PDI with MongoDB, and PDI with Weka (Predictive) – see course descriptions below.
At the PentahoWorld Hands-On Product Training we hand over the keys or in reality – we provide the experts, computers and lunch. This really is a great opportunity to take your knowledge to the next level with in-depth instructions with these innovative technologies. I recommend signing up for the test drive sessions ASAP as space is limited and the early bird pricing ends September 5th.

This Test Drive covers the steps to use Hadoop in the process of optimizing your data warehouse. You’ll gain hands-on experience with creating folders in HDFS, loading data, working with PDI transformations, configuring Pentaho Map Reduce and reviewing your results in HDFS. You’ll orchestrate it all by using a Hadoop job in PDI.
Test Drive Pentaho with MongoDB
This Test Drive outlines a real world scenario based on creating a 360° view of your customers. You’ll gain hands-on experience with connecting MongoDB to PDI, loading data into a MongoDB document, creating arrays, creating an aggregate pipeline query, and visualizing the results. You’ll orchestrate all of these tasks using a MongoDB job in PDI.
Test Drive Pentaho with Weka
This Test Drive introduces basic data mining concepts and terminology, along with the parts of the Pentaho suite that facilitate the development and application of predictive modelling. If you are new to data mining or you are considering a predictive solution for your business challenge, this is the test drive for you. You’ll gain hands-on experience with the Pentaho tools using a real world direct-marketing use case. In particular, you will be introduced to some common types of data mining models and guided through the process of creating, evaluating, exporting and deploying a predictive model.
