Ventana Research on PentahoWorld, company success and 5.2

December 15, 2014

It has been a busy year for Pentaho. A few highlights include: PentahoWorld, our inaugural worldwide users conference, two new product releases (5.1 & 5.2) and a refreshed 36-month vision for our product roadmap and the future of analytics.

In the opening PentahoWorld keynote Pentaho Chairman and CEO, Quentin Gallivan, shared the top three trends driving Pentaho’s vision for governed data to be delivered “at the point of business impact.” These include:

  1. The universe of data is exploding and data is connecting people and things
  2. Evolving data architectures are required to blend data sets
  3. Users expect to consume data in new ways

These trends all align with our latest release Pentaho 5.2 and our vision for a “data orchestration platform.” We were fortunate to have Tony Cosentino, VP and Research Director at Ventana Research attend PentahoWorld to hear about our announcements and keynote firsthand as well as meet with several customers. The team at Ventana Research and Tony have spent time with us over the years discussing, guiding and watching our future unfold. We encourage you to read his first-hand point of view of PentahoWorld, the reasons behind our success and highlights of our latest 5.2 release. Tony summed it up best calling out our focus on “targeted yet flexible” solutions. We know you will be enlightened and impressed.

November 6, 2013

VR_HorizontalLogoWe’re tremendously excited that Ventana Research is launching a new benchmark research on Big Data Integration.  As it becomes clearer to the market that Big Data has huge potential to deliver business value, identifying the right tools & technologies to manage it in the context of specific organizational goals is crucial.  The new research aims to take a step forward in this realm, as it promises to take a hard look at current and planned Big Data deployments, honing in on the solutions for accessing and transforming Big Data in a variety of different technical architectures and business use cases. It should provide great insight into ways that organizations can “unlock” Big Data’s potential.  See the press release here – Ventana Research Launches Big Data Integration Benchmark Research

For further context, we recommend reading a recent blog post from Ventana’s VP & Research Director, Tony Consentino titled, Big Data and Analytics Helps Business Transform and Gain Competitive Advantage. Consentino highlights the broad applicability of Big Data solutions across industries to empower organizations in the face of accelerating changes in markets, operations, & customer preferences.  The blog also cites staffing and training as the two biggest challenges to Big Data analytics, which underlines the importance of the new benchmark research in helping businesses identify which integration approaches will help accelerate time to value through usability by the broadest base of team members.

If you are interested in learning more about or participating in this benchmark research visit ventanaresearch.com/BigDataIntegration. There are several incentives for qualified research participants such as a $5 Amazon.com gift certificate and a complementary report valued at $995 as well as access to a free educational webinar on best practices from the benchmark research.

Finally, the Ventana Research Innovation Summit is next week, November 11-12 in Chicago. Let us know if you will be attending as we would love to meet-up!
